You measure the temperature of a substance in a chemistry lab at 32°F. What is the temperature in degrees Celsius?

Answer:

#0^@#C

Explanation:

The conversion from Fahrenheit to Celsius is given below by any one of the equations:

T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) × 5/9
or
T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) / (9/5)
or
T(°C) = (T(°F) - 32) / 1.8

A few common ones are:

#0^@C=32^@F#
#100^@C=212^@F#
#-40^@C=-40^@F#

Answer:

The temperature is #0^oC#

Explanation:

The freezing point of water in # F^o#is 32 The freezing point of water in #C^o# is 0

The boiling point of water in #F^o# is 212 #F^o# There is a difference of 180 #F^o#

The boiling point of water in #C^o# is 100 #C^o# There is a difference of 100 #C^o#

This makes for a ratio of #180 F^o/ 100 C^o# or # 9 F^o/ 5 C^o#

To Convert from degrees F to degree C. Subtract 32 the difference between the starting points of F and C. Then multiple by the ratio of
# 5 C^o / 9 F^o#

so # 32-32 xx 5/9 # = 0 #C^o#
