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.
  • 4. Answer:
    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...
  • 6. Answer:
    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.
  • 8. Answers:
    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).
  • 11. Additional practice:
    1. Convert 38.6°C into °F
    2. Convert 16°C into °F
    When you are done, go to the next slide to check your answers.
  • 12. Answers:
    1. Round 101.48 up to 101.5°F
    2. 60.8°F
    If you have any questions please ask for help!
  • 13. FYI
    Many units have charts hanging on the nursing unit to give you conversions from Fahrenheit to Celsius. If you Google you can find a site that will automatically convert for you!
    Here’s a web site to try:
