## How to Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius

Convert degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius with this simple formula:

The formula to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius is °F minus 32, times 5, divided by 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

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

## 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.^{[1]} 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.

### Important Temperatures In Degrees Fahrenheit

Temperature | Degrees Fahrenheit |
---|---|

Absolute Zero | -459.67 °F |

Freezing Point of Water | 32 °F |

Triple Point of Water | 32.018 °F |

Boiling Point of Water | 212 °F |

## Celsius

The Celsius temperature scale, also commonly referred to as the centigrade scale, is defined in relation to the kelvin.
Specifically, degrees Celsius is equal to kelvins minus 273.15.^{[2]}

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.
