# 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. Read on to learn everything about the conversion.

## 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.

## Temperature Conversion

Multiply the temperature in degrees Celsius by 9 over 5, then add 32. 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.

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.

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.
