When are farenheit and kelvin numericaly equaly?

  1. Dec 4, 2005 #1
    15. [SFHS99 10.P.13.] At what Fahrenheit temperature are the Kelvin and Fahrenheit temperatures numerically equal?

    is that possible because kevlin will always be aroudn 200 greater anyway .. how do you do this

    Do you know the relation between Fahrenheit and Kelvin? That is, do you know how to convert one into the other?

    Surely you know the relationship between F and C, what is the relationship between K and C?
