Celsius & Fahrenheit Temperature conversion
There are two main temperature scales in common use today, Celsius and Fahrenheit.
Celsius (Centigrade) was introduced in 1742 by Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius. For his scale he used the freezing point and boiling point of water, with 0°C being the freezing point and 100°C being the boiling point.
Fahrenheit was introduced by German born Gabriel Fahrenheit in 1714. In his scale 0°F refers to the coldest temperature he could create with ice and salt. The freezing point of water (0°C) is 32°F in Gabriel's scale. Gabriel Fahrenheit also invented the mercury thermometer.
To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit the formula is: Fh=(Cs*9)/5+32
(where Fh is Fahrenheit & Cs is Celsius)
To convert Fahrenheit to Celsius the formula is: Cs=(Fh-32)/9*5
(where Cs is Celsius & Fh is Fahrenheit)
