Conversion between various temperature scales is relatively straightforward, and is based on a linear dependence. The applet below provides you with an easy way to calculate degrees Celsius from degrees Fahrenheit and vice versa.
Just type the number you want to convert in the appropriate box and click ‘Calculate’.
Precision: Please note that the results are rounded to a maximum of two digits after the decimal point.
You can use our conversion chart to look up corresponding temperature values in Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature scales.

A tool useful for dealing with the Kelvin temperature scale. Lets you directly calculate Fahrenheit from degrees Kelvin.
Did you know that good quality chocolate melts around 34°C? Go ahead and convert that to Fahrenheit. You'll notice it is slightly below the normal body temperature. No surprise here: we don't want cholocate to melt in the room, but would like it to melt it the mouth.
Fahrenheit is a commonly misspelled word in English. Misspelled versions include ‘Farenheight’, ‘Ferinheight’, etc. In case you are interested, this temperature scale was proposed by Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, a scientist who first developed a mercury-based thermometer.
