# Fahrenheit to Celsius Formula

**Formula to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius**

\[\LARGE C \; = \; (F-32) \times \frac{5}{9}\]

**Formula to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit**

It is also known as** Centigrade to Fahrenheit formula.**

**Kelvin to Fahrenheit formula**

$\LARGE F \; = \; \frac{9}{5} \; (K \; – \; 273)\; + \; 32$

The degree Celsius is denoted as **C°** and degree Fahrenheit is denoted as **F°**

The relation between Fahrenheit and Celsius is 1° C = 1.8° F.

### Solved Examples

**Question 1: **Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius**:**

(a) 12° F

(b) 22° F

(c) 37° F.

**Solution:**

The Fahrenheit to Celsius is given by the formula

C = (F – 32) $\times$ $\frac{5}{9}$

(a) 12° F = (12 – 32) $\times$ $\frac{5}{9}$ = – 11.11° C

(b) 22° F = (22 – 32) $\times$ $\frac{5}{9}$ = – 5.55° C

(c) 37° F = (37 – 32) $\times$ $\frac{5}{9}$ = 2.77°^{ }C.
