What is one kelvin equal to a change of temperature of how many degrees celsius?
Kelvin scale and degrees Celsius scale have equal increments, so for every increase of 1 K there is an equal increase of 1 degree Celsius. The scales are merely offset by about 273 units. Here is a formula for conversion: K=[degrees Celsius]+273.15 ...
40 degrees celsius below zero is how many degrees Fahrenheit?
This is the one (and only) number where the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales are equal. Thus -40 deg C = -40 deg F ...

Is one degree Celsius equal to one degree Kelvin?
Yes, a degree Celsius is equal to a degree Kelvin. But because the two scales have different reference points, a given temperature in Celsius will not equal the same temperature in Kelvin. While an increase of on degree on one scale will be same as an increase of one degree on the other, one degree Celsius does not equal one degree Kelvin. The Kelvin temperature scale is based off of what we know to be absolute zero -- the temperature that represents...
Asked in Science
Is kelvin more or less than Celsius?
One degree in the Kelvin scale is equal to one degree in the Celsius scale. They do however have different 'starting' points. Celsius starts (zero degrees 00 C) at the freezing temperature of water. Kelvin starts (zero degrees 00 K) is at absolute zero. Which is the coldest temperature obtainable. This temperature is equal to -273.150 C ...
