How to Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit

Thermometers measure temperature and come in many forms and sizes

Convert degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit with this simple formula:

degrees Fahrenheit = [°C] × 9 / 5 + 32

The formula to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit is °C times 9, divided by 5, plus 32. Insert the [°C] temperature measurement in the formula and then solve to find the result.

For example, let's convert 50 °C to degrees Fahrenheit:

50 °C = ( 50 × 9 / 5 + 32 ) = 122 °F

The Celsius scale and the Fahrenheit scale are both used to measure temperature. Keep reading to learn more about each of them.

Celsius

The Celsius temperature scale, also commonly referred to as the centigrade scale, is defined in terms of the kelvin. Specifically, degrees Celsius is equal to kelvins minus 273.15.[1]

The degree Celsius is the SI derived unit for temperature in the metric system. A degree Celsius is sometimes also referred to as a degree centigrade. Celsius can be abbreviated as C, for example 1 degree Celsius can be written as 1 °C.

Fahrenheit

The Fahrenheit scale is a temperature scale that defines the melting point of water as 32 degrees and the boiling point of water at 212 degrees.[2] There are 180 intervals between 32 °F and 212 °F, each corresponding to one degree.

The degree Fahrenheit is a US customary and imperial unit of temperature. Fahrenheit can be abbreviated as F, for example 1 degree Fahrenheit can be written as 1 °F.
