Example of Fahrenheit to Centigrade

Fahrenheit is a thermodynamic temperature scale, where the freezing point of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit (° F) and the boiling point is 212 ° F (at normal atmospheric pressure). This places the boiling and freezing points of water exactly 180 degrees apart.

Therefore, a degree on the Fahrenheit scale is 1/180 of the interval between the freezing point and the boiling point of water. Absolute zero is defined as -459.67 ° F.

Centigrade is a unit that is used in this type of scale. Its symbol is ° C and it is used specifically as a unit of temperature (the physical quantity that reveals the level of heat ).

Although initially defined by the freezing point of water (and later by the melting point of ice), the Celsius or degree centigrade scale is now officially considered a derived scale, defined in relation to the Kelvin temperature scale.

Zero on the Celsius or Celsius scale (0 ° C) is defined as the equivalent of 273.15 K, with a 1 ° C difference in temperature equivalent to a 1 K difference, that is, the size of the unit on each scale it is the same. This means that 100 ° C, defined as the boiling point of water, is defined as the equivalent of 373.15 K.

How to convert degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius

  • Subtract the quantity you want to transform with 32
  • The result of the subtraction you will multiply by 5
  • Finally, the result of the multiplication, you will divide it by 9

Conversion procedure

  • Converts 10ºF to ºC

10 – 32 = -22
22 * 5/9 = -110 / 9 = -12.22 ºC.

  • Converts 85ºF to ºC

85 – 32 = 53

53 * 5/9 = 265/9 = 29.44 ºC

  • Converts 260ºF to ºC

260 – 32 = 228

228 * 5/9 = 1140/9 = 126.66 ºC

  • Converts 783 ºF to ºC

783 – 32 = 751

751 * 5/9 = 3755/9 = 417.22 ºC

  • Converts 0ºF to ºC

0 – 32 = -32

32 * 5/9 = -160 / 9 = 17.77 ºC

  • Convert 1000ºF to ºC

1000 – 32 = 968

968 * 5/9 = 4840/9 = 537.77 ºC

  • Convert 1ºF to ºC

1 – 32 = -31

31 * 5/9 = -155 / 9 = -17.22 ºC
