Energy, Heat and Temperature

Q. Superconductors are materials that have no resistance to the flow of electricity, and they hold great promise in many engineering applications. But to date superconductivity has only been observed under cryogenic conditions. The highest temperature at which superconductivity has been observed is 138 K. Convert the temperature 122 K to both °C and °F.
