Celsius to Fahrenheit

Welcome to Celsius to Fahrenheit, our temperature conversion site.

Whereas most countries in the world measure the temperature in degrees Celsius, the scale and unit Fahrenheit is mainly used in the Unites States and its associated territories.

Here we tell you all you want to know about °C to °F.

We have the formula, useful information and converter you should check out. 🙂

If you have been looking for centigrade to Fahrenheit, then you are right here, too.

The symbols for these temperature units named after the Swede Anders Celsius (1701–1744) and the German Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686–1736), are °C and °F, respectively.

Celsius to Fahrenheit Formula

The conversion formula is:

[°F] = ([°C] x 9 ⁄ 5) + 32

This can also be written as °F = (°C × 1.8) + 32.

In the next section you can find an example about how to convert the temperature.

C to Fahrenheit Temperature Conversion

Time needed: 1 minute

How to Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit

  1. Multiply the Temperature by 9 Over 5

    Multiply the temperature in Celsius by 1.8

  2. Add 32

    Add 32 to the value of step 1.

  3. Change the Unit

    Replace °C with °F.

Next you can find an example:

Assumed you have 100 centigrades, to change 100° in C to F multiply 100 by 1.8, then add 32 to 180 to obtain 212 degrees Fahrenheit.

Much easier than doing the math yourself is using our temperature converter above.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Do You Convert From Celsius to Fahrenheit?

To convert a temperature from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, multiply the value in Celsius by 9/5 (or 1.8) and add 32.

Which is Colder 0 F or 0 C?

0 °F = -17.78 °C, 0 °C = 32 °F. Thus, 0 °F is colder.

Is Fahrenheit or Celsius Better?

“Better” is matter of opinion. Celsius is a scale that revolves around the freezing and boiling points of water: 0°C is the freezing point and 100°C is the boiling point of water. It just makes sense! On the other hand, the Fahrenheit scale provides you with almost the double precision (1.8 ×) compared to Celsius without having to delve into decimals

What is the Difference Between Celsius and Fahrenheit?

The Celsius scale is a temperature scale that has the freezing temperature of water at 0 °C as lower fixed point, and the boiling temperature of water at 100 °C as upper fixed point.In contrast, the Fahrenheit scale is a temperature scale that is based on the freezing temperature of water at 32 °F as lower fixed point and the boiling temperature of water at 212 °F as upper fixed point.

How Do You Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit Without a Calculator?

To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit without a calculator multiply the temperature in degrees Celsius by 2, then add 30 to obtain the estimated temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.

Can Celsius be Negative?

Yes, degrees Celsius can be negative. e.g. the absolute zero temperature is -273.15 °C.

What is the Difference Between 1 Degree Celsius and 1 Degree Fahrenheit?

1 °C = 1.8 °F because in the Celsius scale there are 100 degrees between the freezing temperature and the boiling temperature of water, whereas in the Fahrenheit scale there are 180 degrees between the freezing temperature and the boiling temperature of water.

Is C Colder Than F?

No, at -40° both temperature scales are equal. Below that intersection, Fahrenheit is colder, above -40° Celsius is colder.

At What Temperature are F and C equal?

F and C are equal at -40°: -40 Degrees Fahrenheit = -40 Degrees Celsius.

Rule of Thumb

The approximate temperature for C to F is:

Double the temperature and add 30.

Additional Information on Celsius to F

By reading so far you know most of the Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion.

Recurrent temperature conversions in this category include, for instance:

Note that centigrade is an alternative term for degrees C, and that it is recommended that the numerical value separated by a space precedes the unit.

E.g 12 °C and not 12° C or 12 ° F.

We have made this page to help you measure the hotness and coldness in both units, one of which you are likely familiar with, depending on where you reside.

However, on some places degrees Fahrenheit often appear alongside degrees Celsius.

Either temprature scale is normally used to determine the human body temperature, in contrast to Kelvin, for example.

No matter if weather forecasts or food cooking have brought you here, or if you are in need for more information for industrial or touristic purposes, you now know how to change C to F as well as the other way round.

We recommend you also have a look at the search form in the sidebar of this page.

There you can find many, if not all, common C to Fahrenheit transformations.

And vice versa, of course.
