Celsius and Fahrenheit Conversion

We have created a listing of the formulas needed to convert
temperature to and from both Celsius and Fahrenheit. We have also
created a converter for your use. The formulas can teach the process
and the converter will make your life easier. Enjoy!
This converter requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers.
In the formulas below, / represents division, * represents
multiplication,  subtraction, + addition and = is equal.
Tc
= (5/9)*(Tf32); Tc = temperature in degrees Celsius, Tf =
temperature in degrees Fahrenheit
For example, suppose you
have a Fahrenheit temperature of 98.6 degrees and you wanted to
convert it into degrees on the Celsius scale. Using the above
formula, you would first subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature
and get 66.6 as a result. Then you multiply 66.6 by fiveninths and
get the converted value of 37 degrees Celsius.
Below is the
formula to convert a Celsius scale temperature into degrees on the
Fahrenheit scale.
Tf = (9/5)*Tc+32; Tc = temperature in
degrees Celsius, Tf = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit
Assume that you have a Celsius scale temperature of 100 degrees and
you wish to convert it into degrees on the Fahrenheit scale. Using the stated formula,
you first multiply the Celsius scale temperature reading by
ninefifths and get a result of 180. Then add 32 to 180 and get the
final converted result of 212 degrees on the Fahrenheit scale.
Below is another accepted conversion method that works just
as well and perhaps might be easier to remember. No matter which
direction you want to covert, Fahrenheit to Celsius or Celsius to Fahrenheit, always first add 40
to the number. Next, multiply by 5/9 or 9/5 just like the first
method. Then, always subtract out the 40 you just added to yield the
final result. To remember whether to use 5/9 or 9/5 when converting
from Fahrenheit to Celsius or Celsius to Fahrenheit, just simply remember, F
(for Fahrenheit) begins with the same letter as
Fraction. 5/9 is always a Fraction; while 9/5
is also a fraction, in this form, it is Clearly a whole
number plus a fraction (1 and 4/5). Thus, if you want to convert
Fahrenheit (F) to Celsius (C), then use the Fraction
5/9; Celsius (C) to Fahrenheit (F), use the other, 9/5, which
is Clearly not just a fraction.
For an example of
this method, we'll use the values we used in the initial example,
98.6 F and 37 C, which are equal.
To convert from F to C,
try these calculations manually. 98.6 + 40 = 138.6, and 138.6 *
5/9 = 77. For the final calculation, remove the 40. 77  40 = 37
To convert from C to F, try these calculations
manually. 37 + 40 = 77, and 77 * 9/5 = 138.6. For the final
calculation, remove the 40. 138.6  40 = 98.6
In summary,
add 40, (F to C) multiply by Fraction...(C to
F) multiply by the other, subtract 40.
The Celsius temperature scale is still sometimes
referred to as the "centigrade" scale. Centigrade means "consisting
of or divided into 100 degrees;" the Celsius scale, devised by
Swedish Astronomer Andres Celsius (17011744) for scientific
purposes, has 100 degrees between the freezing point (0 C) and
boiling point (100 C) of pure water at sea level air pressure. The
term Celsius was adopted in 1948 by an international conference on
weights and measures.
