The Kelvin scale is named after William Thompson Kelvin, a British physicist who devised it in 1848. It extends the Celsius scale down to absolute zero, a hypothetical temperature characterized by a complete absence of heat energy. Temperatures on this scale are called Kelvins (K).

Uses of Kelvin scale: The International System of Measurement uses kelvin scale for measuring temperature.

### Kelvin to Celsius Formula

Celsius = K - 273.15

### Kelvin to Fahrenheit Formula

Fahrenhiet = (K x 1.8) - 459.67

### Kelvin to Rankine Formula

Rankine = K x 1.8

### Kelvin to Reaumer Formula

Reaumer = (K - 273.15) * 0.8
