Converting Fahrenheit to Celsius with Python

Looking to change Fahrenheit to Celsius or Celsius to Fahrenheit?

I'm going to talk on how to Covert Temperature that is from Fahrenheit to Celsius.

The Fahrenheit scale is a temperature scale based on one proposed in 1724 by the physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686–1736). It uses the degree Fahrenheit (symbol: °F) as the unit. In the Fahrenheit scale, water freezes at 32 degrees, and boils at 212 degrees.

The degree Celsius is a unit of temperature on the Celsius scale, a temperature scale originally known as the centigrade scale. The degree Celsius (symbol: °C) can refer to a specific temperature on the Celsius scale or a unit to indicate a difference or range between two temperatures. It is named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701–1744), who developed a similar temperature scale.


To convert temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius, subtract 32 and multiply by .5556 (or 5/9).

  • Example: (50°F - 32) x .5556 = 10°C

Now let's consider a simple converter app, written in Python language.

# A function to convert Fahrenheit to degree Celsius

def temperature converter(Fahrenheit):

Input the temperature to convert to Celsius

Fahrenheit to Celsius

°C = (°F – 32) x 5/9

Celsius to Fahrenheit

Fahrenheit = 9.0/5.0 * Celsius + 32

Celsius = (Fahrenheit - 32) * 5.0/9.0

 Celsius = np.round(Celsius,2)

return '{} Fahrenheit is equivalent to {} Degree Celsius'.format(Fahrenheit,Celsius)

# Invoke the function


Output displayed

'2 Fahrenheit is equivalent to -16.67 Degree Celsius'

In conclusion, the above approach is used to convert temperature Fahrenheit to Celsius.
