Answer

A temperature of $-127^{\circ}F$ is $-88^{\circ}C$ or $185~K$ A temperature of $136^{\circ}F$ is $58^{\circ}C$ or $331~K$

Work Step by Step

We can convert $-127^{\circ}F$ to Celsius. $C = \frac{5}{9}(F-32)$ $C = \frac{5}{9}(-127-32)$ $C = -88$ We can convert this temperature to Kelvin. $K = C+273$ $K = (-88)+273$ $K = 185$ A temperature of $-127^{\circ}F$ is $-88^{\circ}C$ or $185~K$ We can convert $136^{\circ}F$ to Celsius. $C = \frac{5}{9}(F-32)$ $C = \frac{5}{9}(136-32)$ $C = 58$ We can convert this temperature to Kelvin. $K = C+273$ $K = 58+273$ $K = 331$ A temperature of $136^{\circ}F$ is $58^{\circ}C$ or $331~K$
