Absolute Zero 0K -459.67℉
Freezing point 273.15K 32℉
Body Temperature 310.15K 98.6℉
Boiling point 373.15K 212℉


Based upon the definitions of the Centigrade scale and the experimental evidence that absolute zero is -273.15ºC

℉ =
(K - 273.15)* 1.8000
+ 32.00


Fahrenheit is a thermodynamic temperature scale, where the freezing point of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit (℉) and the boiling point 212℉ (at standard atmospheric pressure). This puts the boiling and freezing points of water exactly 180 degrees apart. Therefore, a degree on the Fahrenheit scale is 1/180 of the interval between the freezing point and the boiling point of water. Absolute zero is defined as -459.67℉.

A temperature difference of 1℉ is the equivalent of a temperature difference 0.556℃.
