Celsius is basically a scale or measurement that shows the point at which water will freeze and boil. If the Celsius is at zero degrees, then the water will freeze, and if the Celsius is at 100 degrees, then the water will boil.
Celsius, sometimes it is also known as the centigrade scale, was invented in 1742 by a Swedish astronomer named Anders Celsius. Its name is also based on the name of Anders Celsius.
Physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit devised a temperature scale in 1724 that is the basis for the Fahrenheit scale. As the unit, it utilizes the sign for the degree Fahrenheit (°F).
In Fahrenheit, 20 degrees Celsius equals 68 degrees Fahrenheit. So let us simply put the formula for converting Celsius into Fahrenheit to check if it is correct or not.
So the formula to convert a Celsius temperature to Fahrenheit is as follows:
°F= (9÷5 ×°C) +32
Now let us put values into this formula.
°F = (9÷5 × 20) + 32
(It is given that Celsius = 20)
°F = 36 + 32
°F = 68
Hence, it is proved that 20 degrees celsius is 68 degrees Fahrenheit.
To Convert A Fahrenheit Scale Into A Celsius Scale
The Formula Used Is As Follows:
C°= 5÷9 (F°-32)
Similar to this, there is a Fahrenheit scale which also shows the freezing and boiling points of water, but to a different degree.
On the Fahrenheit scale, 32 degrees is known as the point where water freezes mostly, and 212 degrees is the point where water boils usually. The concept of Fahrenheit was given by a German physician named Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit.
To convert a temperature expressed in Celsius degrees to a Fahrenheit degree
The following formula will be used:
°F= (9÷5 ×°C) +32
One of the most interesting facts is that the Fahrenheit temperature is widely used in the United States while the Celsius temperature is used in most other parts of the world.
