Conversion from K to °C:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{T}}}_{\mathbf{\xb0}\mathbf{C}}{\mathbf{=}}{{\mathbf{T}}}_{{\mathbf{K}}}{\mathbf{-}}{\mathbf{273}}{\mathbf{.}}{\mathbf{15}}}$

Conversion from K to °F:

$\overline{){{\mathbf{T}}}_{\mathbf{\xb0}\mathbf{F}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{\left(}}{{\mathbf{T}}}_{{\mathbf{K}}}{\mathbf{\right)}}{\mathbf{\left(}}\frac{\mathbf{9}}{\mathbf{5}}{\mathbf{\right)}}{\mathbf{-}}{\mathbf{459}}{\mathbf{.}}{\mathbf{67}}}$

**Part 1**

T_{°C} = 700 - 273.15 = 426.85 °C

The temperature in °C during the day is 426.85 °C.

The planet Mercury's surface temperature varies from 700 K during the day to 90 K at night.
