## The coldest temperature ever measured in the United States is -80°F on January 23, 1971, in Prospect Creek, Alaska. Convert that temperature to Celsius and Kelvin.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The given temperature is to be converted in oC and kelvin.

Concept introduction:

Temperature is defined as the measure of how hot or cold something.

Unit conversion is defined as the process in which multiple steps are used to convert the unit of measurement for the same given quantity. It is determined by multiplication with a conversion factor.

The fraction in which numerator and denominator are the same quantities but are determined in different units, is known as a conversion factor.

### Explanation of Solution

In United States, the coldest temperature measured is 80°F. The conversion of 80°F into °C is as follows:

The formula used to convert °F into °C is as follows:

(°F32)×5/9=°C

Conversion of °F into °C is as follows:

T=(°F32)×5/9=(8032)
