Homework Help: Magnitude of temperature change?

  1. Feb 2, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A kid places a bottle of soda in a fridge and lets the temperature drop to 16K. What is the magnitude of its temperature change [Delta]T = 16 K in degrees Celsius?

    2. Relevant equations

    T=275K + deg cel

    3. The attempt at a solution

    16-273 = -257 degree Celsius (this was marked wrong) :/ PLEASE HELP!!!!!
