## How Does Fahrenheit to Celsius Calculator Work?

The temperature of any object or the environment is measured by using a thermometer. Even though Kelvin is the S.I. unit of temperature, however, Fahrenheit and Celsius are the most commonly used units to measure temperature. °F is the symbol used to represent the temperature in Fahrenheit. Similarly, temperature expressed as celsius is denoted by °C. In Celsius, the freezing point of water is 0°C and the boiling point of water is 100°C. While in Fahrenheit, the freezing point of water is 32°F and the boiling point is 212°F. These two facts are used to derive the conversion formula from Fahrenheit to Celsius. The formula is given as

°C = 5/9 × (°F - 32)

Here, C denotes the temperature in Celsius and F denotes the temperature in Fahrenheit.

Steps to convert temperature from Fahrenheit to Celsius are given as follows:

- Subtract 32 from the temperature in Fahrenheit.
- Multiply this value by 5.
- Divide the value from the previous step by 9.

## Solved Examples on Fahrenheit to Celsius

**Example 1:** Convert 68° F to °C and verify it using the online Fahrenheit to Celsius Calculator.

**Solution:**

Placing the Fahrenheit value in the formula: °C = 5/9 × (°F - 32)

°C = 5/9 × (68° - 32)

°C = 5/9 × (36°)

°C = 20° C

Therefore, 68° F is equal to 20° C.

**Example 2:** Convert -78.2° F to °C and verify it using the online Fahrenheit to Celsius Calculator.

**Solution:**

Placing the Fahrenheit value in the formula: °C = 5/9 × (°F - 32)

°C = 5/9 × (-78.2° - 32)

°C = 5/9 × (-110.2°)

°C = -61.22° C

Therefore, -78.2° F is equal to -61.22° C.

Now, use the Fahrenheit to Celsius Calculator. and find the temperature in Celsius for the given Fahrenheit values.

- 86.3° Fahrenheit
- -59° Fahrenheit
