# Melting point of the highest fluoride

This gives the melting point of the fluoride of the element.

K (Kelvin)

## Notes

In cases where there is more than fluoride, the value for the highest fluoride is given.

Other temperature scales include the centigrade (Celsius) scale and the Fahrenheit scale. The size of one degree is the same on the Kelvin scale (K) as on the centigrade scale (°C). The zero point is different:

temperature (K) = temperature (°C) + 273.15

Thus, the melting point of water is = 0°C = 273.15 K and the boiling point of water is = 100°C = 373.15 K

On the Fahrenheit scale (°F), the melting point of water = 32°F while the boiling point = 212°F.

Therefore the degree size is different on the Fahrenheit scale with 180 Fahrenheit degrees = 100 centigrade degrees. Conversion between centigrade and Fahrenheit is achieved using the following relationship:

temperature (°C) = [temperature (°F) -32] * 5/9

You can look at visual representations of melting points, boiling points, and the liquid range using the following links.
