Problem: Suppose that a recipe calls for an oven temperature of 500 oF. Convert this temperature to kelvins.

FREE Expert Solution

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

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


°C = °F-321.8


Converting 28 oC to Fahrenheit:

°C = °F-321.8°C = 500°F-321.8

˚C = 260 ˚C


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


K=°C+273.15
