## Delisle to Kelvin

The Delisle temperature scale was defined by Joseph-Nicolas Delisle in 1732. This measure adjust 0 at the point of the boiling water and 150 as the freezing point of the water. The unit is represented by °D (and sometimes as °De) after the value.

The Kelvin temperature scale was described by William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin in his paper of 1848 On an Absolute Thermometric Scale the idea of starting to measure the temperature from the zero absolute or where the atomic particles just stop moving. The letter K represents its unit after the value.

The Kelvin degrees values are calculated based on the formula $$373.15 - Delisle × {2 \over 3}$$
