20 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit

Celsius and Fahrenheit are common scales used to measure temperature.

20 degrees Celsius(°C)


=


68 degrees Fahrenheit(°F)

Celsius and Fahrenheit are common scales used to measure temperature. Although both of them are used in many countries worldwide, the Fahrenheit scale is mostly used in the United States. The only difference between the two is that they use different numbers to show a particular temperature reading. For example, the freezing point of water is measured in 0° Celsius which will be shown in Fahrenheit as 32° F. The scales start at different numbers which mean you have to add or subtract the temperature by 32 to get the other reading.

The boiling point of water at normal pressure is measured at 100° Celsius and will be indicated in Fahrenheit as 212° F. It gives a difference of 100 degrees apart in the Celsius scale and 180 degrees apart in the Fahrenheit scale. To determine the reading of the other scale, we will have to multiply by 100/180.

If you want to convert the temperature in degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit;

180/100 can be simplified as 9/5 or shown in decimals as 1.8

The method used in converting 20 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit will be; multiply the temperature reading by 9/5 or 1.8 and then add the result to 32.

Celsius to Fahrenheit Converter


20 °C = 68 °F

20 degrees Celsius(°C) = 68 degrees Fahrenheit(°F)

Formula

20°C = 68°F is the standard principle used in the conversion. Therefore, 20 degrees Celsius is equivalent to 68 degrees Fahrenheit.

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

For example;

Convert 20 degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit

Solution

T (°F) = 20 °C x 9/5 + 32

= 68 °F

Other methods that work

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

Using the above example;

20 x2 = 40

Less 10% of 40 (4) = 36

36 + 32 = 68°F
