Fahrenheit to Celsius Formula

Fahrenheit to Celsius formula is used to convert temperature from the scale Fahrenheit to Celsius. Both scales are used to measure the temperature and it provides a way to measure the object’s hotness and coldness. The symbol used to represent Fahrenheit is °F. Similarly, the symbol used for Celsius is °C. The Celsius scale is also known as the centigrade scale. We know that, on a Celsius scale, water freezes at 0°C and boils at 100°C. In the Fahrenheit scale, the water freezes at 32°F and boils at 212°F. In this article, we are going to learn the formula for Fahrenheit to Celsius and Celsius to Fahrenheit formula with examples in detail.

What is Fahrenheit to Celsius Formula?

Fahrenheit to Celsius formula is generally called the F to C formula. It is the conversion formula that converts the given temperature in Fahrenheit to Celsius.

The formula for Fahrenheit to Celsius is given below:

\(\begin{array}{l}^{\circ}C = (^{\circ}F – 32)\times \frac{5}{9}\end{array} \)

Here, F is the measurement of temperature in Fahrenheit

C is the measurement of temperature in Celsius.

Example: What is 80 degrees Fahrenheit in Celsius?

Using the formula, we can convert 80°F into Celsius.

(80°F − 32) × 5/9 = 26.667°C

Celsius to Fahrenheit Formula

The Celsius to Fahrenheit formula is known as C to F Formula and its formula is given by:

\(\begin{array}{l}^{\circ}F = ^{\circ}C\times \frac{9}{5} + 32\end{array} \)

Fahrenheit to Celsius Conversion

Follow the below steps to convert the temperature from degree Fahrenheit to degree Celsius.

Step 1: First subtract 32 from the given Fahrenheit temperature.

Step 2: Now multiply the difference value obtained in step 1 by 5.

Step 3: Finally, divide the product value obtained in step 2 by 9.

Solved Examples on Fahrenheit to Celsius Formula

Example 1:

Convert 108°F to Celsius.

Solution:

Given Fahrenheit temperature, °F = 108°F.

We know that the formula for Fahrenheit to Celsius is °C = [(°F-32)×5]/9

Now Substitute the values in the formula,

°C = [(108-32)×5]/9

°C = (76×5)/9

°C = 380/9

°C = 42.2 

Therefore, 108°F = 42.2°C.

Example 2:

Convert 12°F to Celsius.

Solution: 

Given: 12°F

The Fahrenheit to celsius formula is °C = [(°F-32)×5]/9

Substituting the values in the formula, we get

°C = [(12-32)×5]/9

°C = (-20 ×5)/9

°C = -100/9

°C = -11. 1

Hence, 12°F = -11.1°C.

Example 3: 

Convert 32°F to °C.

Solution:

Given: 

Fahrenheit temperature = 32°F.

We know that °C = [(°F-32)×5]/9

°C = [(32-32)×5]/9

°C = (0 ×5)/9

°C = 0/9

°C = 0.

Therefore, 32°F = 0°C.
