The temperature of liquid nitrogen is 86K. What is this temperature in deg. C?
Question Date: 2018-08-31
Answer 1:

In order to know what is the equivalence of 86 degrees Kelvin (K) into Centigrade (C) , we have to convert them by using the following:

0 degrees Kelvin is equal to -273.15 degrees Celsius:
0°K = -273.15 °C
This means that the temperature T in degrees Celsius (°C) is equal to the temperature T in Kelvin (°K) minus 273.15.

Then for our case:
86°K - 273.15°C = -187.15°C
