Switching from units of kelvin to degrees Celsius? Use or accurate temperature converter to do the kelvin to Celsius calculation. View other temp converters

The **units of temperature** known as **kelvin** and **Celsius** differ in a few aspects. Degrees Celsius are used more commercially as well as in the scientific field, however, we are more likely to use this temperature measurement in our everyday lives. The unit of kelvin came from the field of thermodynamics and is mostly used in science. Try out our **K – °C temperature converter** above or view the rest of our temperature converters.

## How to use the Converter for Kelvin to Celsius?

In the box above, enter into our **kelvin – Celsius converter** the amount of kelvin units that you want to change and click “convert” to be a given a new sum of temperature in degrees Celsius. To work the other way around, convert Celsius to kelvin.

## Formula to Convert K – °C

The temperature conversion formula for the **kelvin to Celsius conversion** is shown below if you need to do the calculation by hand or need to know the correct formula. For instance, 67K = -206.15°C while 305K = 31.85°C

**[number of] K – 273.15 = [number of] °C **

## When to use Kelvin?

The **Kelvin scale** was created by Glaswegian engineer and physicist, William Thomson, who wrote about an absolute thermometric scale. The kelvin is a unit of measurement and not a type of degree like Celsius or Fahrenheit. Absolute zero on the Kelvin scale signifies the end of all thermal motion. Above you will be able to **convert k to °c**.

## When to use Celsius?

The most common form of measuring temperature is in **degrees Celsius**, formerly known as degrees centigrade. The name Celsius comes from the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius who discovered a temperature scale where 0 signified boiling water and 100 freezing water. The temperature scale is used for thermometers and on the news when telling the weather. Use our **kelvin to Celsius calculator** above.
