# Convert 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 Fahrenheit to Celsius (from °F to °C) simply type the number of degrees Fahrenheit (°F) to be converted to degrees Celsius (°C) into the degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius calculator input field and then click on the 'convert' button.

Would you like to make the calculation, details on how to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius by using the Fahrenheit to Celsius formula are provided below.

To convert from a unit of temperature other than degree Fahrenheit (°F), go to temperature conversion page.

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

Formula to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius is:

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

### How to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius - Example calculations

To convert from Fahrenheit to Celsius (from °F to °C) by using the Fahrenheit to Celsius formula, subtract 32 from the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit, Temperature(°F), multiply the result by 5 and then divide by 9.

Example 1: How do you convert 10 Fahrenheit to Celsius?

Temperature(°C) = [10 °F - 32] × 5/9

Temperature(°C) = -12.22

10 °F = -12.22 °C

Or, 10 degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius is -12.22 °C (10 °F to °C is -12.22°C).

If you want to convert 10 degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, use the Celsius to Fahrenheit formula here.

Example 2: How to convert 70 Fahrenheit to Celsius?

Temperature(°C) = [70 °F - 32] × 5/9

Temperature(°C) = 21.11

70 °F = 21.11 °C

70 degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius is 21.11 °C (70 °F to °C is 21.11°C).

## Common temperatures in °F and °C
