# How do the three temperature scales differ?

Originally Answered: What is the relation between different scales of temperature? There are 3 common temperature scales: Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvin. Fahrenheit has the freezing point of water at 32 deg. Celsius at 0 deg and Kelvin at 273 deg.

Also to know is, what are the different scales in measuring temperature?

Temperature Scales. There are three temperature scales in use today, Fahrenheit, Celsius and Kelvin. Fahrenheit temperature scale is a scale based on 32 for the freezing point of water and 212 for the boiling point of water, the interval between the two being divided into 180 parts.

Also Know, which temperature scale is more accurate? Fahrenheit is also more precise. The ambient temperature on most of the inhabited world ranges from -20 degrees Fahrenheit to 110 degrees Fahrenheit — a 130-degree range. On the Celsius scale, that range is from -28.8 degrees to 43.3 degrees — a 72.1-degree range.

Moreover, what is the major difference between the Kelvin scale and Celsius Fahrenheit scales?

The only difference between the scales is their starting points: 0 K is "absolute zero," while 0°C is the freezing point of water. One can convert degrees Celsius to kelvins by adding 273.15; thus, the boiling point of water, 100°C, is 373.15 K.

What is the formula for Kelvin?

The formula to convert Kelvin into Celsius is C = K - 273.15. All that is needed to convert Kelvin to Celsius is one simple step: Take your Kelvin temperature and subtract 273.15.
