                                    Fahrenheit to Celsius Equation

There are two main temperature scales: Fahrenheit and Celsius. Fahrenheit scale is most commonly used in the United States. Celsius scale is a part of the metric system and used in most other countries around the world. The reason why it is used globally is, this scale is relatively simple. For scientific research or some other purposes, we need to convert one scale to another and for that we use Fahrenheit to Celsius Equation.

The Fahrenheit Scale is named for German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit. Celsius Scale was originally known as centigrade and it was later renamed after Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius. Both the scales are most often used for calculating room weather and water temperatures.

Quick Facts: –

  • The Fahrenheit and Celsius scales coincide at -40°.
  • 0°C or 32°F is the freezing point of water and it is also known as the melting point of ice.
  • A Celsius degree is the same size as degree Kelvin so it is most commonly used in scientific application.
  • 100° Celsius is the boiling point of water at normal pressure. Although at higher altitudes, water boils at a lower temperature.
  • The coldest possible temperature is -273.15°C. This temperature is also known as Absolute Zero.
