Expert Answer:

Kelvin is the temperature scale devised and used to measure temperature from the melting point of ice (0 deg Celsius) down to absolute zero, the total absence of heat. Celsius and Fahrenheit are mainly used to measure temperatures from the melting point of ice and up. Zero Kelvin is equal to −273.15 deg Celsius and -459.67 deg Fahrenheit. The boiling point of water is 100 deg Celsius which is also 373.15 Kelvins and 212 deg Fahrenheit
