Celsius to Fahrenheit Converter
Welcome to our Celsius to Fahrenheit converter. Here you can enter your temperature in Celsius, and our tool will convert it into Fahrenheit. You can also enter your temperature in Fahrenheit, and our tool will convert it into Celsius.
If you'd like to know how to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit and its formula, along with some examples, you're in the right place. 😊
What or who is Celsius?
Before we show what the Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion is, let's share some interesting facts regarding Celsius:
Anders Celsius is the name of a Swedish astronomer and mathematician who invented this temperature scale in 1742.
Initially, 0° Celsius was set as the boiling point of water, and 100° was its melting point. Later on, it was inverted.
We also refer to this scale as centigrade because it has 100 degrees of intervals between its defined freezing and boiling water points.
How to use the Celsius to Fahrenheit converter
To use the Celsius to Fahrenheit converter:
Enter your Celsius temperature in the first field, e.g., 20°C.
The calculator will convert it into Fahrenheit and display it in the second field, e.g., 68°F.
You can also use this in reverse and enter your Fahrenheit temperature to obtain your temperature in Celsius.
Furthermore, you can switch either of the temperature units to convert into kelvins.
How to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit. Formula and example
Here's the formula to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit:
And here's the formula to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius:
- - the unit temperature in Fahrenheit; and
- - the unit temperature in Celsius.
Here's an example:
Let's use the formula to convert the boiling point of water, i.e., 100°C into Fahrenheit.
Placing the values in the first formula, we get:
Thus, if we convert 100 °C into Fahrenheit, we get 212 °F.
Now let's convert 212°F back into Celsius.
Placing the values in the second formula, we get:
Thus, if we convert 212 °F back into Celsius, we still get 100 °C.

What is 200 Celsius in Fahrenheit?
It's 392 degrees Fahrenheit when you convert 200 Celsius to Fahrenheit. Though it's a suitable temperature for cooking, it's not great for survival unless you're a Human Torch like in the Fantastic Four.
How do I convert Celsius to Fahrenheit?
To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit:
- Multiply the Celsius by 9/5, i.e., 1.8.
- Add 32 to the result.
- Or use the Celsius to Fahrenheit formula below:
F = (C × 1.8) + 32
F- the temperature in Fahrenheit; and
C- the temperature in Celsius.
How do I convert Fahrenheit to Celsius?
To convert Fahrenheit to Celsius:
- Subtract 32 from Fahrenheit.
- Multiply it by 5/9.
- Or use the Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion equation:
C = (F - 32) × 5/9
C- the temperature in Celsius; and
F- the temperature in Fahrenheit.
What is the lowest temperature in Celsius?
-273.15 °C is the lowest possible temperature in Celsius because that's when everything freezes.
It is known as the absolute zero in Kelvin temperature, as that's when all the particles become completely stationary.
What is 180 Celsius to Fahrenheit?
The temperature of 180 Celsius is 356 Fahrenheit. To find it, multiply the Celsius by 9/5 and add 32 to the result. You can also use the formula below:
°F = (°C × 1.8) + 32
