Celsius and Fahrenheit are the temperature measruing scales and units.
Celsius is one of the most commonly used temperature measring unit and scale. Earlier it used to be known as Centigrade but later it was named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius, who created a temperature measring scale which was exactly opposite of Centigrade. On the scale created by Andres Celsius, 0 was the boiling point of water and 100 was the freezing point of water. Later this scale was reversed and named as "degree Celsius" with the symbol of ºC.
Fahrenheit is a temperature measuring scale and unit, named after German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, who created this scale in 1724.
We often required to convert between temperature measuring units. Around the world, the most commonly used temperature units are Celsius and Fahrenheit. Celsius is commonly used in places like Europe, Asia and Africa whereas Fahrenheit is mostly used in the United States (USA).
Formula to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit is given below:
ºF = ºC * 1.8000 + 32.00
