Use this calculator to quickly convert a temperature from Fahrenheit (°F) to degrees Celsius (°C).

Enter a temperature for an instant °F to °C conversion - there is no need to press submit!

This calculator accepts values using both scales and so, if required, can be used to convert temperatures in Celsius back to Fahrenheit.

If interested, this site has a Celsius to Fahrenheit section, which also features a temperature conversion calculator, formula and tables.

Fahrenheit To Celsius Formula

The calculator above uses the following formula to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius:

Celsius (°C) = (Fahrenheit - 32) / 1.8

The worked example below shows how to convert to Celsius from Fahrenheit using this formula.

If are using this formula to manually convert a temperature, check your result with the calculator.

How To Convert Fahrenheit To Celsius (°F to °C)

This worked example shows how to convert a temperature in Fahrenheit to Celsius using the formula: Celsius (°C) = (Fahrenheit - 32) / 1.8

Worked Example

Convert 70 Fahrenheit (°F) to Celsius (°C)

°C = ( 70 - 32 ) / 1.8
= 38 / 1.8
= 21.11 °C
therefore, 70 Fahrenheit (°F) is equal to 21.11 Celsius (°C)
