Celsius and Kelvin both are two units of measuring temperature. Celsius is commonlyknown as centigrade and mostly used unit system that is used to measure the temperature in daily use. On the other hand, Kelvin is mostly used in the scientific community.

The two measuring scales of temperature use different methods for the freezing and boiling points of water, and also use different sized degrees. Celsius is described in terms of theboiling(100°C) and freezing (0°C) points ofwater.

While Kelvin is mostly used in mathematical calculations that involves temperature. The degree difference between Kelvin and Celsius is **"273.15".** Converting from Kelvin to Celsius and vice versa is simple really, if you are converting from Celsius to Kelvin add 273.15 (K= °C + 273.15) and if you are converting to Kelvin from Celsius subtract 273.15 (°C= K-273.15).
