How to Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius

Thermometers measure temperature and come in many forms and sizes

Convert degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius with this simple formula:

degrees Celsius = ( [°F] - 32 ) × 5 / 9

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

For example, let's convert 50 °F to degrees Celsius:

50 °F = ( ( 50 - 32 ) × 5 / 9 ) = 10 °C

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

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. 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.
