FREE Expert Solution

Recall that the conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit is given by:

$\overline{){°}{\mathrm{F}}{=}{1}{.}{8}{\left(}{°}{\mathrm{C}}{\right)}{+}{32}}$

Converting 98.3˚F to Celsius:

$98.3=1.8\left(°\mathrm{C}\right)+32\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}98.3-32=1.8\left(°\mathrm{C}\right)\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\frac{66.3}{1.8}=\frac{\overline{)1.8}\left(°\mathrm{C}\right)}{\overline{)1.8}}$

˚C = 36.83˚C

The conversion from Celsius to Kelvin is given by:

$\overline{){\mathrm{K}}{=}{°}{\mathrm{C}}{+}{273}{.}{15}}$
