Celsius and Fahrenheit are both units of temperature.

A Celsius scale, is a temperature scale that is based on the freezing point of water at 0°C and the boiling point of water at 100°C while a Fahrenheit scale is a scale based on the freezing point of water at 32°F and the boiling point of water at 212°F.

People tend to covert temperature in celsius to Fahrenheit as Fahrenheit gives you almost double the precision of Celsius which doesn’t include decimals, allowing you to better relate to the air temperature.

**Formula to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit.**

1.8 is the relationship between the Fahrenheit scale which states that 1°C = 1.8 Fahrenheit.

We add 32 as the Fahrenheit scale starts at 32 which is the freezing point of water as it is the amount of offset between the Celsius scale which starts at 0 and the Fahrenheit scale.

**Example:**

Convert the boiling point of pure water which is 100°C to Fahrenheit.

Therefore, the value corresponding with the boiling point of pure water in a Fahrenheit Scale is 87.56 Fahrenheit.
