Understanding the Scales: Celsius vs. Fahrenheit

Celsius and Fahrenheit are two commonly used temperature scales. Water freezes at 0°C and boils at 100°C, while water freezes at 32°F and boils at 212°F. As you can see, the Fahrenheit scale uses larger numbers to represent the same temperature range.

The Conversion Formula: 40 Celsius to Fahrenheit

There’s a simple formula to convert between Celsius and Fahrenheit:

°F = (C x 9/5) + 32


  • °Fis the temperature in Fahrenheit
  • °C is the temperature in Celsius

Converting 40 Celsius to Fahrenheit

Let’s use the formula to convert 40°C to Fahrenheit:

°F = (40°C x 9/5) + 32

  • ° (40 x 1.8) + 32
  • 72 + 32
  • 104°F

Therefore, 40 °C is equivalent to 104 °F
