# How to convert from 1/k to 1/c

Ok, so I know this shouldn't be so hard. I am trying to convert a Coefficient of thermal expansion from 7.78E-6k^-1 to C^-1. But, I'm not sure what the conversion rate would be in this case. This is an odd conversion because you add to switch between C and K. So I'm not sure how to convert these rates. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

$$1 \, \mathrm{K} = 1 \, \mathrm{C}°$$

Thanks. I'm an idiot. I knew it was something simple.
