Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius

Temperature (degrees Fahrenheit):
Temperature (degrees Celsius):

The calculator allows you to convert fahrenheit to celsius.

Perform the reverse calculation: convert celsius to fahrenheit

T°C = (T°F - 32) x 5/9
T°C = (T°F - 32) / 1.8

T°C = temperature in degrees Celsius
T°F = temperature in degrees Fahrenheit
0°C = 32°F

To convert temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius, subtract 32 and divide by 5/9.


We are going to convert a temperature T of 50°F.
Temperature T = 50°F T°C = (T°F - 32) x 5/9
T = 50°F = (50-32) x 5/9 = 18 x 5/9 = 10°C

Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius:

-459.67°F = -273.15°C - absolute zero temperature
-20°F = -28.89°C
-10°F = -23.33°C
0°F = -17.78°C
10°F = -12.22°C
20°F = -6.67°C
30°F = -1.11°C
32°F = 0°C freezing / melting point of water
40°F = 4.44°C
50°F = 10°C
60°F = 15.56°C
70°F = 21.11°C
80°F = 26.67°C
90°F = 32.22°C
98,6°F = 37°C - average body temperature
100°F = 37.78°C
212°F = 100°C - boiling point of water


The degree Celsius (symbol: °C) is a unit of temperature on the Celsius scale. The degree Celsius It is named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701–1744), who developed a similar temperature scale.

What is difference between Fahrenheit and Celsius?

The Fahrenheit and Celsius scales are the two most common temperature scales. Fahrenheit (°F) is a measure of temperature. Celsius (°C) is another measure of temperature. Celsius is used is most countries in the world, except in the United States.

Water boils at 212°F, and water boils at 100°C. 212°F = 100°C = water boiling point
Water freezes at 32°F, and water freezes at 0°C. 32°F = 0°C = water freezing point
In the Fahrenheit scale, water freezes at 32 degrees and boils at 212 degrees.

Fahrenheit is named after the physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686–1736). Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit was the German physicist who invented the mercury thermometer in 1714. He invented the alcohol thermometer in 1709 and the mercury thermometer in 1714. Furthermore he developed the Fahrenheit temperature scale.

The scales of temperature we are most accustomed to using in our daily lives are Celsius (°C or degrees Celsius) and Fahrenheit (°F or degrees Fahrenheit).
