When solving equilibrium problems is there a preferred temperature unit we should be using? I noticed in some homework problems that they use Kelvin and Celcius, should we be converting one of them or does it not matter?

I think we should always use Kelvin unless you are just using the temperature difference.

Unless it says otherwise, we should be using Kelvin, and converting other units into Kelvin

Kelvin is the most commonly and used unit for temperature when solving problems regarding equilibria. When using the formula PV=nRT, for example, the unit for temperature must be in Kelvin.
