0 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit

There are two temperature scales involved in the conversion of 0 degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit.

0 degrees Celsius(°C)


=


32 degrees Fahrenheit(°F)

The similarity between the two scales is that they are both used to measure temperature. However, their unit size is determined by two fixed points. They start with different numbers and rise at different rates along the scale. Water freezes to ice at 0 degrees Celsius and 32 degrees Fahrenheit shown as; (0°C, 32°F). The boiling point of water at normal atmospheric pressure is 100°C in the Celsius scale and is shown in the Fahrenheit scale as 212°F

This gives a difference of 100 and 180 degrees apart in the unit size of the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales respectively. The Celsius and Fahrenheit scales usually intersect at -40°, expressed as -40°F = -40°C.

If you want to determine the calculation of 0 degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit;

180/100 can be simplified as 9/5 whereas 100/180 can be simplified as 5/9.

To get the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit, we first multiply the temperature in degrees Celsius by 5/9. The result is then added to 32.

Celsius to Fahrenheit Converter


0 °C = 32 °F

0 degrees Celsius(°C) = 32 degrees Fahrenheit(°F) 

Formula

0°C = 32°F is the standard principle used in the conversion. Therefore, 0 degrees Celsius is equivalent to 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

T (°F) = [T (°C) x 5/9 + 32 is the method for converting degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit.

For example;

Convert 0 degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit

Solution

T (°F) = [0°C x 9/5] + 32

= 32°F

Other methods that work

First, multiply the temperature reading in degrees Celsius by 2. Subtract 10% from the result and then add 32 to get the temperature reading in degrees Fahrenheit.

For example;

Convert 0 degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit

Solution

0 x 2 = 0

Less 10% of 0 (0) = 0

0 + 32 = 32°F
