Formula to convert degrees Celsius and fahrenheit

Convert Celsius to fahrenheit by using this formula: Celsius * 9/5 + 32.

To convert Fahrenheit to Celsius the equation would be: (Fahrenheit - 32) * 5/9;

About degree Fahrenheit

This unit of measurement has been created by Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, a German physicist and inventor. The Fahrenheit scale was invented in 1724 by considering the point where water was lightly forming ice at 30 degrees while the point of boiling of the mercury was close to 300 degrees.

This temperature scale was the primary standard until 1960 when the Celsius took his place in nearly all countries. Get more information about Fahrenheit on Wikipedia.

History of degree Celsius

The unit degree Celsius was admitted in 1948, until then used as centigrade temperature scale since 1742. The ebullition and the freezing point was originally inverted until Jean-Pierre Christin changed it in 1743. The physicist and astronomer Anders Celsius of Sweden was the inventor of that centigrade scale that considered 0 as the point temperature of boiling water and 100 as the temperature of freezing.

Fever and body temperature norms

The normal human body temperature taken with a thermometer in the mouth (or basal body temperature) is 37 ° C or 98.6 ° F.
This same average temperature taken in the rectum is higher than in the mouth, higher by a scale of 0.5 degree Celsius or +/- 1 degree Fahrenheit (0.9 degree to be exact).

When the temperature measured in the mouth rises above 37.5 degrees Celsius (or 99.5 ° F), 38 degrees Celsius (100.4 ° F) in the rectum, it can be considered fever.

When the fever reaches 40 ° C or 104 ° F, it is considered a major health problem

Special Fact

The conversion of -40, or minus 40 from Celsius to Farenheit gives exactly the same result, -40.

From the lowest thermometer reading to the highest with the description of the human body part where the thermometer is used.

Body part Normal variation of temperature (Celsius and Fahrenheit)
Mouth 35.5 °C to 37.5 °C (95.9 °F to 99.5 °F)
Under armpit (or axillary) 36.5 °C to 37.5 °C (97.8 °F to 99.5 °F)
Ear (tympanic) 35.8 °C to 38.0 °C (96.4 °F to 100.4 °F)
Rectum (or rectal) 36.6 °C to 38.0 °C (97.9 °F to 100.4 °F)
