What temperature is Celsius and Fahrenheit equal?
The two different types of units or scales to measure temperature are Celsius and Fahrenheit.
Answer: The temperature where Fahrenheit and Celsius are the same is (- 40) i.e., - 40 ºF = - 40 ºC
Let's look into the conversion between Celsius and Fahrenheit scales in detail.
The formula to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit is given by °F = °C × (9/5) + 32
Now, in order to find a temperature where Fahrenheit and celsius are the same, we put F = C in the above equation.
C = (C × 9/5) + 32
C = 9C/5 +32
C - 9C/5 = 32
(5C - 9C)/5 = 32
-4C = 32 × 5
-4C = 160
C = 160/(-4)
C = - 40
Hence, we get F = C = - 40.
