Converting Fahrenheit to Centigrade / Celsius

Converting Centigrade / Celsius to Fahrenheit

 

° F = Degrees Fahrenheit
° F = 9/5 °C+32)
1 unit is 1/180 of the difference between the temperature of melting ice and boiling water at standard temperature and pressure.

 

° C = Degrees Centigrade / Celsius
° C = 5/9 (° F-32)
1 unit is 1/100 of the difference between the temperature of melting ice and boiling water at standard temperature and pressure.
