We are asked to Convert 500 °F temperature to kelvins.

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

$\overline{){\mathbf{\xb0}}{\mathbf{C}}{\mathbf{}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{}}\frac{\mathbf{\xb0}\mathbf{F}\mathbf{-}\mathbf{32}}{\mathbf{1}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{8}}}$

Converting **– 28 ^{o}C to Fahrenheit**:

$\mathbf{\xb0}\mathbf{C}\mathbf{}\mathbf{=}\mathbf{}\frac{\mathbf{\xb0}\mathbf{F}\mathbf{-}\mathbf{32}}{\mathbf{1}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{8}}\phantom{\rule{0ex}{0ex}}\mathbf{\xb0}\mathbf{C}\mathbf{}\mathbf{=}\mathbf{}\frac{\mathbf{500}\mathbf{\xb0}\mathbf{F}\mathbf{-}\mathbf{32}}{\mathbf{1}\mathbf{.}\mathbf{8}}$

**˚C = 260 ˚C**

Recall that the conversion from **Celsius to Kelvin** is given by:

$\overline{){\mathrm{K}}{=}{\xb0}{\mathrm{C}}{+}{273}{.}{15}}$

Suppose that a recipe calls for an oven temperature of 500 ^{o}F. Convert this temperature to kelvins.
