Celsius to Fahrenheit
Celsius to Fahrenheit is the conversion of temperature from Celsius unit to Fahrenheit unit. Temperature scales provide a way of measuring how hot or cold a body is. Fahrenheit and celsius are temperature scales. Water freezes at 32° Fahrenheit and boils at 212° Fahrenheit on Fahrenheit scale whereas on Celsius or centigrade scale, water freezes at 0° Celsius and boils at 100° Celsius. The symbol used for Fahrenheit is °F whereas for Celsius it's °C. Thus, the Celsius to Fahrenheit formula is also commonly referred to as the C to F formula.

Celsius to Fahrenheit Formula
Celsius to Fahrenheit formula is the conversion formula to convert the given temperature from °C to temperature in °F. We know that the freezing point of water is 0 degrees on the Celsius scale and 32 degrees on the Fahrenheit scale, whereas the boiling point of water is 100 degrees on a Celsius scale and 212 degrees on the Fahrenheit scale. The formula to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit is given by: °F = °C × (9/5) + 32.
By using this formula, we can convert any given temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit (C to F).
How to Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit?
To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, we will be using the same C to F formula given above. C to F conversion formula for a given value can be expressed as,
°F = °C × (9/5) + 32
Where,
 C = Measure of temperature in degree celsius (°C).
 F = Measure of temperature in degree Fahrenheit (°F).
To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, we can follow the steps given below:
 Step 1: Identify the temperature value in Celsius.
 Step 2: Multiply the given temperature by 9.
 Step 3: Divide the product by 5.
 Step 4: Add 32 to that number. That will be the required value in degree Fahrenheit (°F).
For example, let us convert 20° Celsius to Fahrenheit: °F = 20 × (9/5) + 32 = 36 + 32 = 68°F. Therefore, 20° Celsius is equal to 68° Fahrenheit (20°C = 68°F).
Derivation of C to F Formula
As we are already aware of the boiling point and freezing point of water at the normal pressure on the Celsius scale as well as Fahrenheit scale. We will be using the same for the C to F formula derivation. The freezing point of water in Fahrenheit is 32°F and its boiling point is 212°F. So, there is a difference of 212  32 = 180°F in the freezing point and boiling point of water (in °F). Similarly, the freezing point of water in Celsius is 0°C and its boiling point is 100°C. So, there is a difference of 100  0 = 100°C in the freezing point and boiling point of water (in °C).
Water freezes at 0°C and 32°F, so the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales start with different points (0 vs 32). If we want to equate them in an equation form, then we need to add/subtract 32 to make both sides equal. So, at this level (freezing point of water), the equation formed is °F = °C + 32.
Then, the Celsius scale moves up to 100 degrees and the Fahrenheit scale moves up to 212 degrees. Here, the scales rise at a different rate (100 vs 180). So, we need to change the above equation with a certain rate.
Fahrenheit and Celsius are directly proportional to each other. With the rise of temperature on the Celsius scale, the temperature on the Fahrenheit scale also rises and vice versa. So, the ratio of change from C to F is 100/180 or 5/9. From F to C, it is 180/100 or 9/5.
Thus on conversion, we get °F = °C × (9/5) + 32. Therefore, the formula for converting Celsius to Fahrenheit scale reduces to °F = °C × (9/5) + 32.

Celsius to Fahrenheit Conversion Examples

Example 1: Express 105°C in Fahrenheit using the C to F formula.
Solution:
The given temperature is 105°C. To convert C to F, we will use the following formula,
°F = (9/5) °C+32
Put the values,
°F = (9/5)(105°)+32
°F = 189 + 32
°F = 221°
Therefore, 105°C is 221° in Fahrenheit.

Example 2: A normal body temperature is 37°C. Convert 37°C to Fahrenheit.
Solution:
The temperature of a normal body in Celsius = 37°C (given)
To convert 37°C temperature of the body into °F, we use the Celsius to Fahrenheit formula:°F = (9/5) °C + 32
Put the values,
°F = (9/5)(37) + 32
°F = 66.6 + 32
°F = 98.6
Therefore, the temperature of a normal body in Fahrenheit is 98.6°F.

Example 3: Convert 40° C to Fahrenheit.
Solution:
Temperature in Celsius = 40°C (given)
Using C to F Formula,
°F = (9/5) °C+32

°F = (9/5)(40) + 32
°F= 72 + 32
°F = 104
Therefore, 40°C is equivalent to 104°F.
