## Kelvin To Fahrenheit Formula

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

Fahrenheit (°F) = Kelvin x 1.8 - 459.67

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

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 Kelvin to Fahrenheit calculator.

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

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