# Celsius to Fahrenheit

## Celsius to Fahrenheit FAQ

### What is the formula to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit?

To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, use the following formula: $$ F = \frac{9}{5}C + 32 $$ where ( F ) is the temperature in Fahrenheit and ( C ) is the temperature in Celsius.

### How do you convert 25 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit?

To convert 25 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit, apply the conversion formula: $$ F = \frac{9}{5}(25) + 32 = 45 + 32 = 77 $$ So, 25 degrees Celsius is equal to 77 degrees Fahrenheit.

### Why do Celsius and Fahrenheit scales differ?

Celsius and Fahrenheit scales differ primarily in their starting points and increments. Celsius is based on the freezing (0°C) and boiling points (100°C) of water under standard atmospheric conditions, divided into 100 equal parts. Fahrenheit, however, sets 32°F as the freezing point of water and 212°F as the boiling point, divided into 180 equal parts.

### How can you quickly estimate Celsius to Fahrenheit without a calculator?

A quick estimate for converting Celsius to Fahrenheit can be done by doubling the Celsius temperature and then adding 30. For example, for 20°C: $$ F \approx 2 \times 20 + 30 = 40 + 30 = 70 $$ This method is not exact but gives a close approximation (actual conversion: 68°F).

### Is there a temperature where Celsius and Fahrenheit are the same?

Yes, there is one temperature where Celsius and Fahrenheit are equal: -40 degrees. To verify: $$ -40 = \frac{9}{5}(-40) + 32 $$ $$ -40 = -72 + 32 $$ $$ -40 = -40 $$ Thus, -40°C is equal to -40°F.
