Temperature Converter

The Temperature Converter Tool helps you convert one measuring unit of temperature into another measuring unit. You can convert between Fahrenheit, Celsius, Kelvin, and Rankine.

The online tool helps you to learn about the temperature of any item or object you want to desire. And allow you to measure and convert the basic units of temperature.

What is the temperature?

Temperature is the physical quantity, which can express the hot or cold state of the object. 

It is the measure of how hot or cold it is. In general, it is the substance's ability or the physical system's ability to transfer the heat to another substance or the physical system.

The temperature affects everything in the universe. Some areas are quite cold, and some are quite hot. 

People live in those areas, and with time, they develop their living system and their body according to their native region. 

Our body senses the temperature. People living in the north pole have to face freezing weather. They cannot easily adjust to the heat of the sun. But if they do not maintain their body temperature with their living area, they can not survive.

Therefore, learning about the land temperature, you will step onto matters a lot because you have to prepare as per requirements.

What are the four units of temperature?

It is necessary to know the temperature units, as the temperature is the physical quantity, which expresses the hot or the cold state of the object.

There are four basic units to measure the temperature. 

  • Celsius scale, which is formerly known as centigrade, and is denoted by °C.
  • The Fahrenheit scale and is denoted by °F.
  • The Kelvin scale and is denoted by K.
  • The Rankine scale and is represented by (°R, °Ra).

However, the base unit to measure the temperature is Kelvin. 

The Rankine scale is not generally used. It is primarily used in engineering systems and for scientific purposes.

  • The Kelvin is the base unit of the temperature. And it was first presented by William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) in 1848. The Kelvin scale is mostly used in science and technology, but that scale is not generally used in our daily life.

The rest of the world uses the SI-derived unit Celsius as a measuring unit for the temperature. 

  • The Celsius scale was first presented by a Swede Anders Celsius in 1742. According to the Celsius scale, the water's freezing point is 0 °C, and the water's boiling point is 100 °C.
  • Dutchman first introduced the Fahrenheit scale named Gabriel Fahrenheit in 1724. According to the Fahrenheit scale, the boiling point of water is 212 °F, and the freezing point is 32 °F, and the temperature of the human body begins at 96°F. That unit is mostly used in the areas of the United States and a few Caribbean countries. 
  • A Scottish William Rankine first presented the Rankine scale in 1859. According to the scale temperature of -459.67°F, Fahrenheit is equal to zero in Rankine. However, that scale is not widely used. It is used in some technology areas of the USA. But NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) does not recommend using the Rankine scale anymore.

How to convert Fahrenheit °F to Celsius °C by using an online temperature converter tool?

The fastest way to convert Fahrenheit °F to Celsius °C is by using the online conversion tool.

To do this, follow the below-mentioned steps.

  • Open the temperature converter online tool
  • Enter the amount 1 in the first column. 
  • In the second column, "Select from," select Fahrenheit °F as a measuring unit from which you want to convert. 
  • In the third column, "Select to," select Celsius °C as a measuring unit in which you want to convert.
  • Click on the "convert" button; the result will be there -17.222 Celsius °C within no time.

One Fahrenheit °F = -17.222 Celsius °C 

Temperature Conversion Table

From To Fahrenheit To Celsius To Kelvin
Fahrenheit (°F) °F (°F - 32) / 1.8  (°F - 32) / 1.8 + 273.15
Celsius (°C) (°C * 1.8) + 32 °C °C + 273.15
Kelvin (K) (K - 273.15) * 1.8 + 32 K - 273.15 K
