How to Convert Delisle to Fahrenheit

Thermometers measure temperature and come in many forms and sizes

Convert degrees Delisle to degrees Fahrenheit with this simple formula:

degrees Fahrenheit = 212 - [°De] × 6 / 5

Insert the [°De] temperature measurement in the formula and then solve to find the result.

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

50 °De = ( 212 - 50 × 6 / 5 ) = 152 °F

Delisle and Fahrenheit are both units used to measure temperature. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Delisle

The Delisle scale is a temperature scale that sets a fixed zero point equal to the temperature of boiling water. The Delisle scale is uses incrementing degrees as the temperature decreases. It runs from 0 degrees at the boiling point of water to 150 degrees at the the freezing point.

Delisle can be abbreviated as De, for example 1 degree Delisle can be written as 1 °De.

Unit of Measurement Conversion Made Easy!

There are thousands of units of measure in use across the globe, and converting from one to another can be very difficult since each conversion requires a different formula to derive the result. Our unit of measurement conversion tools are meant to be dead easy. We break the mold of the typical dry and complicated experience. In addition to converting from one measurement to another, we provide the formula so you can see how the conversion is done, use it on you’re own calculator if you need to!

Understanding the Metric System

The metric system makes it relatively easy to convert from one metric unit to another metric unit. The metric system uses a base unit, think meters or grams, and a prefix such as kilo or milli. The prefixes differ from the base units by differing powers of 10. So to convert within the metric system it’s usually a matter of multiplying or dividing by one of the powers of 10.

Here is a list of some of the common metric prefixes:

  • “kilo” – 1,000x larger
  • “hecto” – 100x larger
  • “deca” – 10x larger
  • “deci” – 10x smaller
  • “centi” – 100x smaller
  • “milli” – 1,000x smaller

There is a helpful mnemonic for remembering the prefixes: “King Henry Died Until Drinking Chocolate Milk.”
The u in Until refers to the base unit.
