a) $38.89^{\circ}C$ b) $-459.67^{\circ}F$ c) $-54.4^{\circ}F$ d) $-0.15^{\circ}C$
Using the conversion factors below, we can convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit or vice-versa. To find the Celsius temperature we can convert from Fahrenheit using the following formula $(^{\circ}F-32)\times\frac{5}{9}$ and to convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit, the following formula can be used; $(^{\circ}C\times\frac{9}{5})+32$. Additionally to convert to Kelvin from Celsius, we can do so by simply adding 273.15 and to covert from Kelvin to Celsius, we simply subtract 273.15. a) $(102^{\circ}F-32)\times\frac{5}{9} = 38.89^{\circ}C$ b) $0 - 273.15 = -273.15^{\circ}C$ $(-273.15^{\circ}C\times\frac{9}{5})+32 = -459.67^{\circ}F$ c) $(-48^{\circ}C\times\frac{9}{5})+32 = -54.4^{\circ}F$ d) $273 K - 273.15 = -0.15^{\circ}C$
