## What is the equivalent temperature in Celsius for 436 kelvin?

A. 709

B. 336

C. 163

D. 536

## Answer:

C. 163

To convert from Kelvin (K) to Celsius (°C), you need to subtract 273.15 from the given temperature in Kelvin. In this case, to convert 436 K to °C, you would perform the following calculation:

436 K - 273.15 = 162.85 °C

Therefore, 436 K is equivalent to 162.85 °C.

The Kelvin scale is an absolute temperature scale where 0 K represents absolute zero, the point at which all molecular motion ceases. The Celsius scale, on the other hand, is a relative temperature scale with 0 °C representing the freezing point of water and 100 °C representing the boiling point of water at standard atmospheric pressure.

When converting from Kelvin to Celsius, we subtract 273.15 because the Kelvin scale starts at absolute zero and the Celsius scale starts at the freezing point of water.

In this case, the conversion tells us that a temperature of 436 K is equivalent to 162.85 °C, indicating that it is a relatively warm temperature on the Celsius scale. Therefore, Option C is correct.
