Like do we have to memorize the formulas?

I believe no because Lavelle has been recommending us to do the practice textbook questions but there hasn't been any temperature problems like that.

I doubt you would need to memorize the fahrenheit-celsius formulas as fahrenheit is rarely used in chemistry. However, I would suggest that you remember that Kelvin is Celsius + 273.15 (though I believe this is provided on the constants and equations sheet). This will probably be more relevant when we learn about gas laws and such.

The formulas are pretty simple and majority of the time the problems are asking for conversion of fahrenheit to celsius or Kelvin.
