Celsius to Fahrenheit Conversion

It is a temperature conversion calculator that converts Celsius (°C) to Fahrenheit (°F) degrees. It is programmed with active controls that perform independent functions of the converter. The blank text field allows you to enter the value in degrees Celsius. The ‘Convert' button executes the conversion from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit. The ‘Reset' button is used to erase all of the previous data when you want to execute new conversions.

The method used in performing the calculation is indicated at the bottom platform of the calculator. You can only enter decimal values or whole numbers in the blank text field. This conversion calculator can only convert values from Celsius to Fahrenheit. If you have the values in Fahrenheit, you will use the Fahrenheit to Celsius calculator.

Example

Convert 40 degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit

Solution

The first procedure is to enter the value 40 in the blank text field. Click the ‘Convert' button to execute the conversion. Your results will be displayed below the controls in degrees Fahrenheit.

Calculation

40°C × 9/5 + 32

= 104°F

Formula for converting Celsius to Fahrenheit

The converter uses a simple procedure in carrying out the calculations.

0 °C = 32 °F is the standard principle used in converting Celsius to Fahrenheit. Therefore, it means that zero degrees Celsius is equivalent to 32 degrees Fahrenheit.

T (°F) = T (°C) x 9/5 + 32 is the procedure used by the calculator in determining the conversion results. This implies that the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit is calculated by multiplying the temperature in degrees Celsius by 9/5 and then added to 32.

Using the example above, the calculation will be indicated as;

T (°F) = 40 °C x 9/5 + 32 = 104 °F
