What is the formula to convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius?
°C=(°F - 32) * 5/9
Convert 5°F to celsius
5 °F =(5 - 32) * 5/9 = 41 °C
Convert 10°F to celsius
10 °F = (10 - 32) * 5/9 = 50 °C
Convert 100°F to celsius
100 °F = (100 - 32) * 5/9 = 212 °C
What is a Fahrenheit?
The Fahrenheit (symbol: °F) is a unit of temperature that was widely used prior to metrication. It is currently defined by two fixed points: the temperature at which water freezes, 32°F, and the boiling point of water, 212°F, both at sea level and standard atmospheric pressure. The interval between the freezing and boiling point is divided into 180 equal parts.
What is the Fahrenheit used for?
Until the 1960's the Fahrenheit scale was the primary scale used in English-speaking countries. Today, most countries around the world use the Celsius temperature scale instead, many having made the change during their metrication processes (conversion to using the metric system of units). However, the Fahrenheit scale is still used as the official temperature scale in a number of countries, including the United States.
What is a Celsius?
The Celsius (symbol: °C) is an SI (International System of Units) derived unit of temperature. It is defined based on the SI unit of temperature, the kelvin. The Celsius and Kelvin scales are precisely related, with a one-degree change in Celsius being equal to a one degree-change in kelvin.
What is the Celsius used for?
The Celsius scale replaced the Fahrenheit scale in most countries in the mid to late 20th century. Almost all countries around the world use this scale, except for those in which the metric system has not been adopted, such as the United States.
