## Fahrenheit To Kelvin Formula

Use this formula to convert a temperature in Fahrenheit (°F) to Kelvin (K).

Kelvin (K) = (Fahrenheit - 32) / 1.8 + 273.15

If required, there are worked examples below which use this formula to show how to convert a temperature in Fahrenheit to a temperature in Kelvin.

As with any math calculation and conversion, it's good practice to double check your results. If you are using this formula for your own conversions, you can check your result with the Fahrenheit to Kelvin calculator.

Temperature scales are usually named after the person who created them. The temperature scales used in this formula were created by Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686-1736) and William Thomson, Baron Kelvin (1824-1907).

Given the Kelvin scale was invented many years after the Fahrenheit scale, it's probable William Kelvin also created this formula for converting Fahrenheit to Kelvin.
