Degree Celsius (ºC) to Fahrenheit (ºF) Temperature Conversion Formula

The Celsius to Fahrenheit, and Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion formula we use is standard in textbooks.

Degree Celsius to Fahrenheit Conversion Formula

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

Here is the formula below, using [A] as the input for degrees Celsius, and [B] for Fahrenheit.

  • ([A]°C × 9/5) + 32 = [B]°F

And here is an example:

  • (20°C x 9/5) + 32 = 68°F

Fahrenheit to Degree Celsius Conversion Formula

To convert temperature in Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius, subtract 32 and multiply by (5/9) or 0.5556.

Here is the formula below, using [B] as the input for Fahrenheit, and [A] for degree Celsius.

  • ([B]°F − 32) × 5/9 = [A]°C

And here is an example:

  • (68°F – 32) x 5/9 = 20°C

What is the Difference Between Degree Celsius (ºC) and Fahrenheit (ºF)?

The fact that Celsius is used in the UK; and Fahrenheit is used in the US aren’t the only differences. But what exactly are these metrics and what do they mean?

What is Degree Celsius?

Degree Celsius, abbreviated as °C, is a unit of temperature measurement in the metric system. It was founded by Anders Celsius, a Swedish astronomer, in 1742. Celsius is widely used in the UK in scientific, every day, and meteorological contexts and around the world. The freezing point of water is 0°C, and the boiling point is 100°C at standard atmospheric pressure.

What is Fahrenheit?

Fahrenheit, abbreviated as °F, is a temperature scale introduced by Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, a Polish-German physicist, in 1724. It is primarily used in the United States and some Caribbean countries. In the Fahrenheit scale, the freezing point of water is 32°F, and the boiling point is 212°F at standard atmospheric pressure.

Final Thoughts from UK vs. USA

With this easy-to-use temperature conversion calculator, you’ll always be equipped to bridge the gap between these two scales, no matter where you are- the UK, or the US.
