    How to translate Fahrenheit to Celsius?

    The most common scales for measuring temperature are Celsius and Fahrenheit. Most of all countries use the Celsius scale, which is well-known and used by us. Application of another scale can be seen only in the United States of America. There are, of course, other measurement scales, but they are used for scientific calculations, and are absent in everyday life.

    Celsius is the most comprehensible measurement scale. It is very easy to make its separation:

    • 0 - Water freezing point;
    • 100 - boiling point of water.

    If you look through most of our lives associated with water, it is very easy to draw a parallel between temperature and Celsius scale. But it often happens that it is necessary to transfer data from one measurement scale to another. Such calculations are not difficult to do and the question: how to translate Fahrenheit to Celsius you will not arise, you just need to know what formula is being done.

    Temperature conversion from Fahrenheit to Celsius

    We subtract 32 from this reading, then multiplies by 5 and divide by 9.

    Example: 136 Fahrenheit. We translate: (136-32) * 5/9 = 58, that is, 136 Fahrenheit equals 58 degrees Celsius.

    Temperature conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit

    This indication is multiplied by 9, divided by 5, then we add 32.

    Example: 100 degrees Celsius. We translate: 100 * 9/5 + 32 = 212, that is, 100 degrees Celsius equals 212 Fahrenheit.
