Q
Matter in our Surroundings

Question:

Q.1: Convert the following temperatures to the Celsius scale:

(a) 293K

(b) 470K

Answer:

(a) The relation of degree Celsius and Kelvin is given below:

T(K) = T(°C) + 273

The conversion of 575K into °C is shown below:

293K = T(°C) + 273

T(°C)  = 293K - 273

T(°C)  = 20°C

Therefore, the correct answer is 20°C.

 

(b) The relation of degree Celsius and Kelvin is given below:

T(K) = T(°C) + 273

The conversion of 575K into °C is shown below:

470K = T(°C) + 273

T(°C)  = 470K - 273

T(°C)  = 197°C

Therefore, the correct answer is 197°C.
