## Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius (°F to °C) converter

Fahrenheit and Celsius are the two units commonly used to measure the room temperature, weather, etc. Enter the temperature in Fahrenheit to find the Celsius value using the °F to °C converter.

#### Formula:

Tc = (Tf - 32) * (5 / 9) Where, Tc = temperature in degree Celsius, Tf = temperature in degree Fahrenheit

Fahrenheit is a temperature scale introduced by the Dutch-German-Polish physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit. Its unit is degree Fahrenheit. Until 1960s, Fahrenheit scale has been used as major scale for climatic, industrial and medical purposes. Celsius is also known as Centigrade scale. It is a temperature scale used in all nations except the US. It is developed by a Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius. It refers to specific temperature on temperature scale and also used as a unit to measure the temperature difference. Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius using this simple online °F to °C Converter.

Fahrenheit has a defined 32 degrees of freezing point and 212 degrees as boiling point. °C has boiling point of 100 degrees and freezing point as 0 degrees. 1 °F is equal to -17 degree °C. Some parts of the world uses Fahrenheit and some uses Celsius as their routine temperature measurement unit. Hence this °F to °C converter is useful in determining the equivalent value of Celsius when compared to °F.

### Example:

50 °F is equal to , = (50 - 32) x (5 / 9)
= 18 x (5/9)
= 10°C
