What is Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion formula?
Fahrenheit = Celsius × 1.8 + 32. To convert degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, multiply the degree Celsius by 1.8 and add 32.
The 1.8 Celsius to Fahrenheit ratio means for each Celsius degree there are 1.8 Fahrenheit degrees and it is calculated by dividing the difference between boiling and freezing points for each of these temperature scales, that makes (212 °F - 32 °F) / (100 °C - 0 °C) = 1.8 .
The 32 is the difference between freezing point of Fahrenheit (32) and freezing point of Celsius (0).
How to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit?
To convert degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, multiply the degrees Celsius by 1.8 and add 32.
For example, to convert from 30 °C to °F, multiply the degrees Celsius by 1.8 and add 32, that makes 30 °C * 1.8 + 32 = 86 °F .

What is Celsius?
Celsius (Centigrade) is a temperature scale with the freezing point of water is 0 degree and the boiling point of water is 100 degrees under standard atmospheric pressure (101.325 kPa).
The absolute zero temperature is -273.15 °C. The average body temperature in degrees Celsius is generally accepted as 37 °C (between 36.1 °C and 37.2 °C).
The Celsius temperature scale is a metric system derived SI temeperature unit and used in all countries except the United States. It is named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701–1744). The symbol is "°C".
What is Fahrenheit?
Fahrenheit is a temperature scale with the freezing point of water is 32 degree Fahrenheit and the boiling point of water is 212 degree Fahrenheit under standard atmospheric pressure (101.325 kPa). The absolute zero temperature is -459.67 °F.
The absolute zero temperature is -273.15 °C. The average body temperature in degrees Fahrenheit is generally accepted as 98.6 °F (between 97 °F and 99 °F).
The Fahrenheit temperature scale is mostly used in the United States. It is named after German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1724). The symbol is "°F".
