0° on the Celsius scale is the temperature at which water freezes. 0° on the Kelvin scale is absolute zero (all molecular vibration at a standstill) and 273.15° Kelvin is the temperature at which water freezes. A movement of one degree in either reflects the same increase in temperature. A Celsius reading can thus be converted into the Kelvin reading by adding 273.15° to it. The Kelvin scale sets 0°K at minus 273.15° Celsius (absolute zero) To convert from Celsius to kelvin you add 273 to the Celsius temperature to get kelvin.

No but they can be converted.

Very easily - just add 273.15 to degrees Celsius to get Kelvin.

Add 273.15 to Celsius to get Kelvin.

Kelvin Temperature - 273 = Celsius Temperature

Kelvin = degree Celsius + 273.15 So 259 (oC) + 273.15 = 532.15 = 532 K

184 Kelvin = 184 - 273.15 Celsius = - 89.15 Celsius

Celsius can be converted both to Kelvin and Fahrenheit. If converted to Kelvin it is 0 K. If converted to Fahrenheit, it is 523.15 degree fahrenheit.

the Celsius and kelvin scales never give the same reading due to the difference between them is 273 and the difference can never meet

0 degrees Celsius is equivalent to 273 degrees Kelvin. an increase of 1 degree Celsius is equal to an increase of 1 degree Kelvin. Therefore they will never display the same reading.

No the Kelvin temperature is higher. The conversion for Kelvin to Celsius is K=c+273.15.

Use this equation to convert Celsius/Centigrade to degrees Kelvin: [K] = [°C] + 273.15
