# Celsius to Fahrenheit converter | °C to °F

## Degree Celsius

The degree Celsius denoted as °C is a unit of measurement in the temperature scale used in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as 1/273.16 of the thermodynamic temperature of the triple point of water, which is assigned the numerical value of 273.15 K (Kelvin).

0°C is the freezing point of water and 100°C is the boiling point of water under normal pressure (1 atmosphere) at sea level. The celsius scale is commonly used in countries around the world as a means of measuring temperature and is often used in scientific and meteorological applications.

## Degree Fahrenheit

The degree Fahrenheit denoted as °F is a unit of temperature measurement that is used in the United States and a few other countries. It is defined as 1/180 of the thermodynamic temperature of the triple point of water, which is assigned the numerical value of 32°F.

The freezing point of water is 32°F (0 degree Celsius) and the boiling point of water is 212°F (100 degrees Celsius) under normal pressure (1 atmosphere) at sea level.

Fahrenheit scale is less used in scientific and meteorological applications and is mainly used in the US, Belize, and the Bahamas, while most of the world uses Celsius.

## How to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit

To convert a temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit, you can use the following formula:

**Fahrenheit = (Celsius × 9/5) + 32**

Where Fahrenheit is the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit and Celsius is the temperature in degrees Celsius.

So, you can use this formula to convert any temperature in Celsius to Fahrenheit.

Example: 25 Celsius = (25 × 9/5) + 32 = 77 Fahrenheit

You can also use the inverse formula, which is

Celsius = (Fahrenheit - 32) × 5/9

for Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion.

## FAQ

### Who invented the celsius scale?

The Celsius scale of temperature was invented by Swedish Astronomer **Anders Celsius** in 1742. He
proposed a temperature scale in which the freezing point of water was at 0 degrees and the boiling point was at 100
degrees at standard atmospheric pressure.

### Who invented the Fahrenheit scale?

The Fahrenheit scale was invented by a German physicist, engineer, and glass blower **Daniel Gabriel
Fahrenheit** in 1724. He proposed the Fahrenheit temperature scale, in which the freezing point of water is
32 degrees and the boiling point is 212 degrees at standard atmospheric pressure.

### What is 25 celsius in Fahrenheit?

To convert 25°C to Fahrenheit, you can use the conversion formula:

Fahrenheit = (Celsius x 9/5) + 32

Plugging in the value for Celsius with 25, we get:

Fahrenheit = (25 x 9/5) + 32

So 25°C is equivalent to 77°F.

Fahrenheit = 77

### What is 180 celsius in Fahrenheit?

To convert 180°C to Fahrenheit, you can use the conversion formula:

Fahrenheit = (Celsius x 9/5) + 32

Plugging in the value for Celsius with 180, we get:

Fahrenheit = (180 x 9/5) + 32

So 180°C is equivalent to 356°F.

Fahrenheit = 356

### What is 30 celsius in Fahrenheit?

To convert 30°C to Fahrenheit, you can use the conversion formula:

Fahrenheit = (Celsius x 9/5) + 32

Plugging in the value for Celsius with 30, we get:

Fahrenheit = (30 x 9/5) + 32

So 30°C is equivalent to 86°F.

Fahrenheit = 86

### What is 200 celsius in Fahrenheit?

To convert 200°C to Fahrenheit, you can use the conversion formula:

Fahrenheit = (Celsius x 9/5) + 32

Plugging in the value for Celsius with 200, we get:

Fahrenheit = (200 x 9/5) + 32

So 200°C is equivalent to 392°F.

Fahrenheit = 392

### What is 37 celsius in Fahrenheit?

To convert 37°C to Fahrenheit, you can use the conversion formula:

Fahrenheit = (Celsius x 9/5) + 32

Plugging in the value for Celsius with 37, we get:

Fahrenheit = (37 x 9/5) + 32

So 37°C is equivalent to 98.6°F.

Fahrenheit = 98.6

It's worth noting that 37°C is considered the normal body temperature for humans.
