Fahrenheit to Kelvin
Fahrenheit to Kelvin conversion is done by using a simple formula i.e. (T)_{K} = 5/9 (T)_{F} + 459.67. Fahrenheit and Kelvin are the two very commonly known and used scales for temperature. While the Fahrenheit scale of temperature is used in the United States, the Kelvin scale is used extensively for scientific calculations worldwide. There is a lot of scientific and engineering equipment that makes use of the Fahrenheit scale. Let us see learn the Fahrenheit to Kelvin formula along with a few solved examples.

What is Fahrenheit to Kelvin?
Fahrenheit and Kelvin are both units of measurement for temperature and are represented as °F and K respectively. Fahrenheit scale is made of smaller units where onedegree change on the Kelvin scale is equal to 1.8°F change on the Fahrenheit scale. To convert F to K, we need to use a simple formula that helps in deriving the measurement. It’s possible to convert temperatures from Fahrenheit to Kelvin, and vice versa. There are two ways that you can make the conversion, either converting directly to Kelvin, or converting to Celsius and then converting that measurement to Kelvin.
Definition of Fahrenheit
Fahrenheit is a temperature scale, this scale is based on 32° and 212° for the freezing point and boiling point of water respectively, the interval between the two being divided into 180 equal parts. It is represented as °F and can also be used to convert the given temperature from Fahrenheit into other units of measurement.
Definition of Kelvin
Kelvin is the base unit to measure temperature in the International System of Units. The fraction 1/273.16 of the thermodynamic temperature represents the triple point of water and this scale is known as Kelvin. It divides the interval between the points of ice and steam into 100 divisions making one Kelvin the same as one Celsius. This unit is represented as K without the symbol (°) as it is an absolute scale based on absolute zero.
Fahrenheit To Kelvin Formula
The conversion of Fahrenheit into Kelvin is very easy. To report the temperature using the Kelvin scale, the degree symbol is not used; instead, they are noted or denoted as Kelvin itself. Fahrenheit to Kelvin formula of a given temperature can be expressed as,
(T)_{K} = 5/9 [(T)_{F}_{ }+ 459.67]
where,

(T)_{K}_{ }= Temperature in Kelvin.
 (T)_{F} = Temperature in Fahrenheit.
Method 2: Convert Fahrenheit to Kelvin
Apart from using the abovementioned formula, we can also convert F to K in another method by using these simple steps:
 Subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature.
 Multiply this number by 5.
 Divide this number by 9.
 Add 273.15 to this number.
Fahrenheit To Kelvin Conversion Table
The following table shows temperature values that are converted from Fahrenheit to Kelvin.
The conversion table below shows the two basic criteria for checking the temperature.

Examples Using Fahrenheit to Kelvin

Example 1: Convert 100 degrees Fahrenheit to Kelvin.
Solution:
To find: Temperature in Kelvin
T_{F} = 1000 F(Given)
Using Fahrenheit to Kelvin formula,
(T)_{K} = 5/9 [(T)_{F}_{ }+ 459.67]
Putting the value:
= 5/9(100+459.67)
= 5/9(559.67)
= 2798.35/9
= 310.93 K
Therefore, 100 degree Fahrenheit = 310.93 K.

Example 2: Isabella wants to Convert 0 degrees Fahrenheit to Kelvin. Can you help her?
Solution:
To find: Temperature in Kelvin
T_{F} = 0º F(Given)
Using F to K formula,
(T)_{K} = 5/9 [(T)_{F}_{ }+ 459.67]
Putting the value:
= 5/9(0º+459.67)
= 5/9(459.67)
= 2298.35/9
= 255.37 K
Therefore, 0 degree Fahrenheit = 255.37 K

Example 3: Convert 130°F into Kelvin.
Solution:
To find: Temperature in Kelvin
T_{F} = 130º F(Given)
Using F to K formula,
(T)_{K} = 5/9 [(T)_{F}_{ }+ 459.67]
Putting the value:
(T)_{K }= 5/9(130 + 459.67)
= 5/9(589.67)
= 2948.35/9
= 327.59 K
Therefore, 130°F = 327.59 K.
FAQs on Fahrenheit to Kelvin Formula
What Is Fahrenheit to Kelvin Formula?
Fahrenheit to Kelvin formula of a given temperature can be expressed as, (T)_{K} = 5/9 [(T)_{F}_{ }+ 459.67], where, (T)_{K}_{ }= Temperature in Kelvin and (T)_{F} = Temperature in Fahrenheit.
How to Apply Fahrenheit to Kelvin Formula?
Fahrenheit to Kelvin formula can be applied when we want to convert a temperature given in Fahrenheit to Kelvin. We use the following formula for the conversion:
T)_{K} = 5/9 [(T)_{F}_{ }+ 459.67],
where,
 (T)_{K }= Temperature in Kelvin
 (T)_{F} = Temperature in Fahrenheit
Convert 25°F to Kelvin Using Fahrenheit to Kelvin Formula?
25°F can be converted to Kelvin using the formula, T)_{K} = 5/9 [(T)_{F}_{ }+ 459.67]. (T)_{K }= 5/9 (25_{ }+ 459.67) = 269.26K.
How Do You Convert Fahrenheit to Kelvin Formula?
To convert F to K, we can use the formula i.e. (T)_{K} = 5/9 [(T)_{F}_{ }+ 459.67]. Another method that we can use to convert the temperatures is by using the following steps:
 Subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature.
 Multiply this number by 5.
 Divide this number by 9.
 Add 273.15 to this number.
What is the Relation Between Fahrenheit and Kelvin?
Fahrenheit scale is made of smaller units where onedegree change on the Kelvin scale is equal to 1.8°F change on the Fahrenheit scale. Mathematically the relationship can be described as K = 273 + (5/9)*(F32) that helps to convert F to C.
