This example problem illustrates the method to convert temperatures from Kelvin to Celsius.**Problem:**

What is the temperature in °C of a 256 K object?**Solution:**

The conversion formula for °C to K is

T_{C} = (T_{K}) - 273

T_{C} = 256 - 273

T_{C} = -17 °C**Answer:**

The temperature in Celsius of a 256 K object is -17 °C.
