## Newton scale to Kelvin

The Newton temperature scale was defined by Isaac Newton in 1701 setting as 0 on this scale "the heat of air in winter at which water begins to freeze", or in other words, 0 as in Celsius scale, and the value 33 for "heat at which water begins to boil", so around 100 ℃, being exactly 100 the value commonly used for conversions between both scales. The Newton is represented as °N 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 scale degree values are calculated from Newton values following the formula $$Newton × {100 \over 33} + 273.15$$
