### Temperature Conversion Program in Java

Here's a simple program to convert temperatures between degrees Celcius, Fahrenheit and Kelvin written in Java. There's no GUI used here - all output is done via the command line.
The forumulae for the conversions were obtained from Temperature conversion forumlas on Wikipedia

// Main method demonstrating usage of above methods
public static void main(String[] args)

System.out.println(celciusToKelvin(0));

// to convert from Kelvin to Fahrenheit, combine two methods:
System.out.print("373.15 degrees Kelvin in Fahrenheit is: ");
System.out.println(celciusToFahrenheit(kelvinToCelcius(373.15f)));
