Kelvin to Delisle (K to °De) conversion formula

Delisle = ((Kelvin - 273.15) * 1.5) + -100

273.15 Kelvin to Delisle calculation

Delisle = ((Kelvin - 273.15) * 1.5) + -100

Delisle = ((1 - 273.15) * 1.5) + -100

Delisle = (0 * 1.5) + -100

Delisle = 0 + -100

Delisle = -100

Kelvin is an absolute temperature measurement defined in the International System of Units (SI). It is named after the Scottish physicist William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) who studied the field of thermodynamics. The Kelvin scale is based on absolute zero; the point at which all molecular motion ceases.

Unlike most other temperature scales, Kelvin does not have degrees as it is not a relative scale. The Kelvin scale is often used in physics, chemistry, and cosmology.

One advantage of Kelvin is that it does not have negative values making some calculations easier. This is useful in science calculations involving gases as it relates to the kinetic energy of molecules.

Developed by French astronomer Joseph-Nicolas Delisle, the Delisle scale was created in the early 18th century. It is a backwards scale that has decreasing values as the temperature rises.

The freezing point of water is 150 degrees and the boiling point is 0 degrees. To convert a temperature from Delisle to Celsius, you can use the formula: Celsius = (150 - Delisle) * 2/3.

In the 18th century the Delisle scale was widely used particularly in Russia but has since been forgotten and replaced by the Celsius scale.
