## Fahrenheit to Kelvin

The Fahrenheit temperature scale was proposed by Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit in 1724 with the idea of starting from a brine solution freezes as 0, and 96 is the average temperature of human body. Its unit is represented with ℉ 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 $$(Fahrenheit + 459.67) × {5 \over 9}$$
