Fahrenheit to Celsius (°F to °C)

Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius

Using the Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion calculator above you can calculate how many degrees Celsius are in 'X' degrees Fahrenheit (where 'X' is the number of degrees Fahrenheit to convert to degrees Celsius). In order to convert a value from Fahrenheit to Celsius (from °F to °C) simply type the number of °F to be converted to °C and then click on the 'convert' button.

To convert from degrees Fahrenheit (°F) to a unit of temperature other than degrees Celsius (°C), go to Fahrenheit conversions.

To convert from a unit of temperature other than degrees Fahrenheit (°F), go to temperature conversions.

If you want to do the reverse unit conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit, go to Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion page.

Fahrenheit to Celsius conversion formula

Temperature(°C) = [Temperature(°F) - 32] × 5/9

Example: Convert 86 °F to °C.

Temperature(°C) = [86 °F - 32] × 5/9

Temperature(°C) = 30 or

86 °F = 30 °C
