Celsius And Fahrenheit Slides For Students

  1. 1. Celsius and Fahrenheit <br />Use this web site or follow the slide show<br />
  2. 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.<br />If you know degrees Fahrenheit, use this formula:<br />°F – 32 = °C<br />1.8<br />If you know degrees Celsius, use this formula:<br />1.8 (°C) + 32 = °F<br />
  3. 3. FAHRENHEIT TO CELSIUS<br />Enter your known number for °F. Then solve.<br />Example: Convert the boiling point of water from °F into °C:<br /> <br />Solution: Water boils at 212 °F, so:<br /> <br />212°F – 32 = 100°C<br />1.8<br /> <br />212-32= 180. <br /> <br />180 ÷ 1.8 = 100. <br />
  4. 4. Answer:<br />The answer is 100°C is the boiling point of water on the Celsius scale<br />
  5. 5. Fahrenheit into Celsius...<br />Now try this using normal body temperature: <br />Convert 98.6°F into °C.<br />When you have the answer, go to the next slide...<br />
  6. 6. Answer: <br />37°C.<br />
  7. 7. For more practice:<br />1. Convert freezing point in Fahrenheit into Celsius (Freezing = 32°F).<br />2. Convert 104°F into °C.<br />After you have the answers, go to the next slide. <br />
  8. 8. Answers:<br />1. 0°C<br />2. 40°C (note: a body temperature of <br /> 104°F or 40°C is dangerously <br /> high as in infection and sepsis)<br />
  9. 9. Celsius to Fahrenheit<br />... The “other” formula<br />
  10. 10. Celsius to Fahrenheit<br />If you know the °C, you can convert this into °F using this formula:<br />1.8 (°C) + 32 = °F<br />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). <br />
  11. 11. Additional practice:<br />1. Convert 38.6°C into °F<br />2. Convert 16°C into °F<br />When you are done, go to the next slide to check your answers.<br />
  12. 12. Answers:<br />1. Round 101.48 up to 101.5°F<br />2. 60.8°F<br />If you have any questions please ask for help!<br />
  13. 13. FYI<br />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! <br />Here’s a web site to try:<br />
