How to Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit


How to Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit
It’s easy to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit temperature using the formula F = 1.8C + 32.

Knowing how to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit is useful when converting temperature measurements from different countries. Americans, people from U.S. territories, and some Caribbean countries report temperatures in Fahrenheit. Most of the world uses the Celsius scale. Fortunately, the temperature conversion is simple. Here is the formula with examples of how to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit.

  1. Multiply the Celsius temperature by 1.8
  2. Add 32.

Formula to Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit

Choose either of two formulas to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit.

The formula to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit is

°F = 95°C + 32

where °F and °C are the temperatures in Fahrenheit and Celsius respectively.

Avoid the fraction and use 1.8 in place of 95.

°F = 1.8 °C + 32

Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit Example

Question: Room temperature is 25 °C. What is 25 °C in °F?

Solution: Use the formula:

°F = 1.8 °C + 32

Plug in 25 into the °C part of the equation.

°F = (1.8 x 25) + 32
°F = 45 + 32
°F = 77 °F

Answer: 25 °C is the same as 77 °F.

Convert Body Temperature From Celsius to Fahrenheit

Body temperature is 37 °C. What is this temperature in Fahrenheit?

°F = 1.8 °C + 32
°F = (1.8 x 37) + 32
°F = 66.6 + 32
°F = 98.6
