# 400 degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius

When the Fahrenheit scale reads 400°F, the Celsius scale will be at 204.444°C.

## 204.444 degrees Celsius(°C)

The Fahrenheit and Celsius scales are both used to measure temperature. In the Fahrenheit scale, the freezing and boiling points of water differ by 180 degrees while there is a range of 100 degrees apart in the Celsius scale. Although the two scales are used to measure temperature, they start with a different reading and rise at different rates. When the Fahrenheit scale reads 400°F, the Celsius scale will be at -204.444°C. The primary difference between the Celsius and Fahrenheit scale originates from the unit size i.e. the difference between the freezing and boiling points of water gives the Fahrenheit scale a unit size of 180 degrees apart while the Celsius scale differs by 100 degrees apart.

To determine the calculation of 400 degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius;

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

If you want to get the temperature in degrees Celsius, we subtract 32 from the temperature reading in degrees Fahrenheit. Multiply by 5/9 to determine the reading.

### Fahrenheit to Celsius Converter

#### `400 degrees Fahrenheit(°F) = 204.444 degrees Celsius(°C)`

##### Formula

400°F = 204.444° Celsius is the standard principle used in the conversion. Therefore, it implies that the 400 degrees Fahrenheit is equivalent to 204.444 degrees Celsius.

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

##### For example;

Convert 400 degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius.

##### Solution

T (°C) = [400°F – 32] x 5/9

= 204.444° Celsius

#### Other methods that work

We can also use a different procedure to determine the results. First, you will add 40 to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and then multiply by 5/9. Add 40 to the result to get the temperature in degrees Celsius.

##### For example;

Convert 400 degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius

##### Solution

400°F + 40 = 440

= 440 x 5/9 = 244.444

= 244.444 - 40 = 204.444° Celsius
