Temperature Conversion

Fahrenheit Celsius
°F °C

Enter a value for Fahrenheit or Celcius to convert to the other, then hit the Enter or TAB key on your keyboard to see the result.

Here are the formulas for temperature conversion:

Fahrenheit to Celsius:

To convert temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius, subtract 32 and multiply by .5556 (or 5/9).

  • Example: (50°F - 32) x .5556 = 10°C

Celsius to Fahrenheit:

To convert temperatures in degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit, multiply by 1.8 (or 9/5) and add 32.

  • Example: 30°C x 1.8 + 32 = 86°F

82•F - 32 = 50 (now) 50*.556

82•F - 32 = 50 (now)
50*.556 = 27.8•C (exact)

Unless you need the EXACT

Unless you need the EXACT number, you can do a quick conversion in your head:

70F - 32 = 38 divided by 2 = 19, then add 1 or 2(remember, this is close enough, not exact)= 21C. The exact conversion would be 21.1.

Another example is 40F - 32 = 8 divided by 2 = 4C. For a lower F temperature to start with, you don't have to add much. In this case, the exact conversion is 4.4.

why is it so many formula

why is it so many formula method to convert in the different version?

F into C Subtract 32,

F into C
Subtract 32, multiplyng by 5, and Divided by 9

Ex-
50 F = C
50-32=18
18*5=90
90/9=10 C

gud to understand but update

gud to understand but update the information day to day

Gud to start spelling

Gud to start spelling correctly, too #itsspeltgood

Easiest way: Google it. Type

Easiest way: Google it. Type "convert x degrees Fahrenheit into Celsius" That goes for many measurements. For example, kg-pounds, m-inch and etc. It works both ways.

Yo ppl! Conversion of C to

Yo ppl!

Conversion of C to F.
Take the value of C, multiply it by 2.
then subtract the first digit of the answer from the answer, then simply add 32.
Example: 10C to F ?
10*2=20
20-2=18
18+32=50F

Go vice versa too.
Have fun!

This will not work is above

This will not work is above 99C or below -99 C
C to F
C+40 *9/5-40=F
F+40*5/9-40=C
will work at any temp

A nice little poem to remember for Celsius...
Zero is freezing.
10 is not.
20 is warm.
and 30 is hot!

It's even easier.... If you

It's even easier....
If you notice, the Celcius and Fahrenheit scales are equal at -40 degrees.
The conversion formula (to go either way) would be
temp = (old temp + 40) X - 40

where X is 5/9 to convert to Celcius
and X is 9/5 to convert to Fahrenheit

One formula does the trick.
To Convert 0 degrees Celcius to Fahrenheit:
temp = (0 + 40) 9/5 + 40
temp = 40 * 9/5 + 40
temp = 72 - 40
temp = 32 degrees Fahrenheit

Thank you so much! My math

Thank you so much! My math book is so complicated. Instead of just simply saying what you said, It said

F + 9/5C + 32

9/5C + 32 + F

9/5C + 32 - 32 = F -32

9/5C = F - 32

5/9 x 9/5C = 5/9(F-32)

C = 5/9(F - 32)

SO COMPLICATED!
