# Fahrenheit to Celsius

Fahrenheit to Celsius is our article explaining the temperature conversion.

We have eveything about F to C, including the formula and a converter.

The temperature scale Fahrenheit is named after Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, a German physicist, whereas the also common temperature scale Celsius is attributed to Anders Celsius, a Swedish astronomer.

The symbols for these units of measurement are °F and °C, respectively.

## Fahrenheit to Celsius Formula

The degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius Formula is °C = (°F − 32) / 0.555…

More formally, the formula is written as [°C] = ([°F] − 32) x 5 ⁄ 9.

In the next part you can find a F to Celsius example.

## How to Convert the Temperature?

For example, to change 100 °F to °C:

Subtract 32 from 100 to obtain 68. Then multiply 68 by 5 / 9.

Here you can change Celsius to Fahrenheit.

### How do you convert F to C easily?

Subtract 30, then half it

°F = °C × 2 + 30

### How can C and F be the same?

At -40 ° the two temperature scales intersect

### What is the C to F formula?

[°F] = ([°C] x 9 ⁄ 5) + 32

### Why do Americans use Fahrenheit?

It’s historical, without a strong impetus to change

Sometimes you come across the term centigrade, which is a synonym for degrees Celsius.

Frequent temperature conversions in this group include, for example:

Below you can find some key temperature conversions:

• Absolute zero in °F = −459.67 °F
• Absolute zero in °C = −273.15 °C
• Intersection of the two scales: -40°
• Human body temperature 37.0 °C or 98.6 °F on average

On the Fahrenheit scale, the freezing point of water is approximately 32 degrees Fahrenheit (°F) and the boiling point is at 212 °F, provided standard atmospheric pressure conditions.

On the Celsius temperature scale the freezing point of water is approximately 0 degrees Celsius (°C) and the boiling point is at 100 °C, assumed standard atmospheric pressure.

## Definition of Temperature

Temperature = the average kinetic energy of the atoms or molecules in an object.

## Summary

By reading that far you know the most important facts about the conversion, be it either for professional reasons or private purposes you can now transform these temperature units with ease.

Remember that the thermometer temperature can differ from the perceived warmth and cold.
