10 degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius

Conversion of 10 degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius involves two different temperature scales.

10 degrees Fahrenheit(°F)

-12.22 degrees Celsius(°C)

Conversion of 10 degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius involves two different temperature scales. The Fahrenheit scale (°F) is a unit of measurement mostly used in the United States for scientific calculations. The Celsius scale (°C) is part of the Metric system that is used by most countries worldwide. The similarity in the two scales is that they both measure temperature. However, they start with a different number and rise at different rates. When the Fahrenheit scale reads 10°F, the Celsius scale will be at -12.22°C.

The freezing and boiling points of water differ by 100 degrees apart in the Celsius scale and 180 degrees apart in the Fahrenheit scale. That is the primary reason why both temperature readings will be different when converted in another scale. The freezing points of water in the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales is shown as 0°C and 32°F respectively. While the boiling points at normal temperature are 100°C and 212°F respectively.

We first subtract 32 from the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit. The result is then multiplied by 5/9 to get the temperature reading in degrees Celsius.

Fahrenheit to Celsius Converter


10 °F = -12.22 °C

10 degrees Fahrenheit(°F) = -12.22 degrees Celsius(°C)

Formula

10°F = -12.22°C is the standard principle used in the conversion. Hence, 10 degrees Fahrenheit is equal to -12.22 degrees Celsius.

T (°C) = {T (°F) - 32 x 5/9} is the method used in converting degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius.

Example

Convert 10 degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius.

Solution

T (°C) = {10°F -32} X 5/9

= -12.22° Celsius

Other methods that work

The first procedure is to add 40 to the temperature reading in degrees Fahrenheit. The result is then multiplied by 5/9 and subtracted from 40.

For example;

Convert 10 degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius.

Solution

10 + 40 = 50

50 x 5/9 = 27.78

27.78 - 40 = -12.22°C
