Changing from degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius? Our temperature converter will help you move easily between °F and °C degrees. Try it out yourself!

Converting between degrees of **Celsius** and **Fahrenheit** is common when it comes to **temperature conversions**. Governments wanted a standardisation in temperature measurements so used Celsius to do so. Now the Celsius scale of temperature is mostly used in the world, except in the US where Fahrenheit is favoured. When reading recipes and cooking, such as for , it is common to need to convert between these two temperatures.Use this** Fahrenheit – Celsius converter** to change between the two.

## Formula to Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius

The mathematical formula used by the **temperature converter f to c** is shown below and is useful if you need to know how the online conversion is done. For example, 10°F = -12°C = and 100°F = 37.7°C

**(°F – 30) / 2 = °C**

## When to use Fahrenheit?

In the United States, the temperature scale of **Fahrenheit** is favoured. The Fahrenheit scale as we know it today is based on one proposed by German physicist, Daniel Fahrenheit. The freezing point of water using this temperature scale is 32°F while the boiling point is 212°F. Try out our **°F – °C conversion tool**.

## When to use Celsius?

**Degrees Celsius** is the most common form of measuring temperature used in thermometers and on the news when telling the weather. Formerly known as degrees centigrade, the Celsius scale comes from the temperature scale proposed by the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius where 0 signified boiling water and 100 freezing water.
