Kelvin is the absolute temperature scale and it is measured from absolute zero*. A difference in temperature of 1 kelvin is the same as a difference of 1° C. However, 0 kelvin is approximately -273°C so, on this scale, water boils at 373 K and freezes at 273 K. Note however that there is no ° symbol used to indicate temperature on the kelvin sca...
