### Transcript

• 1. Celsius and Fahrenheit
Use this web site or follow the slide show
• 2. Celsius and Fahrenheit are two different scales for measuring temperature. To convert a temperature from one to the other you must memorize two formulas and be able to pick the correct formula.
If you know degrees Fahrenheit, use this formula:
°F – 32 = °C
1.8
If you know degrees Celsius, use this formula:
1.8 (°C) + 32 = °F
• 3. FAHRENHEIT TO CELSIUS
Enter your known number for °F. Then solve.
Example: Convert the boiling point of water from °F into °C:

Solution: Water boils at 212 °F, so:

212°F – 32 = 100°C
1.8

212-32= 180.

180 ÷ 1.8 = 100.
The answer is 100°C is the boiling point of water on the Celsius scale
• 5. Fahrenheit into Celsius...
Now try this using normal body temperature:
Convert 98.6°F into °C.
When you have the answer, go to the next slide...
37°C.
• 7. For more practice:
1. Convert freezing point in Fahrenheit into Celsius (Freezing = 32°F).
2. Convert 104°F into °C.
After you have the answers, go to the next slide.
1. 0°C
2. 40°C (note: a body temperature of
104°F or 40°C is dangerously
high as in infection and sepsis)
• 9. Celsius to Fahrenheit
... The “other” formula
• 10. Celsius to Fahrenheit
If you know the °C, you can convert this into °F using this formula:
1.8 (°C) + 32 = °F
Try using your answers above in degrees Celsius and use the formula to get back to the degrees Fahrenheit (ie – convert boiling point, normal body temperature, and freezing point in Celsius back into degrees Fahrenheit).
