## Celsius To Fahrenheit Formula

Use this formula to convert a temperature in Celsius (°C) to Fahrenheit (°F).

Fahrenheit (°F) = (Celsius x 1.8) + 32

If required, there are worked examples below which use this formula to show how to convert a temperature in Celsius to a temperature in Fahrenheit.

As with any math calculation and conversion, it's good practice to double check your results. If you are using this formula for your own conversions, you can check your result with the Celsius to Fahrenheit calculator.

Temperature scales are usually named after the person who created them. The temperature scales used in this formula were created by Anders Celsius (1701–1744) and Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686–1736).

I am unsure if it was Anders Celsius or Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit who created this conversion formula. Literature indicates that the Fahrenheit scale was invented in 1724 and the Celsius (Centigrade) scale invented in 1742. From these dates, it's probable that Anders Celsius invented this conversion formula.
