What is -17 Celsius to Fahrenheit
Convert degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit
Converting the temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit is easy enough. Let’s try to convert -17 C to F. Substitute this data into the formula F = (C ? 9/5) + 32 and you get: 1.8*-17.0+32=1.40.
The answer to C to F is 1.40. which can be written as follows:
-17 C = 1.40 F
An even simpler way to translate C toF, but less accurate, is to multiply the Celsius scale temperature reading by 2 and add 30. If we take 36.6° C as an example, we get: -17*2 + 30 = -4 F. As you can see from the last example, there is an error of over 5°F, so this method can give an approximate indication. Calculating the opposite way, from Fahrenheit to Celsius, the inverse formula must be applied: (-4-30)/2 = -17°C.
Did you know that many scientists measure temperature in Kelvin, which allows them to more easily chart temperatures we don’t encounter in everyday life, such as absolute zero (-273.15 °C or -459.67 °F) or the temperature of the stars?
On the Fahrenheit scale, the melting point of ice is +32 °F and the boiling point of water is +212 °F (at normal atmospheric pressure). One degree Fahrenheit equals 1/180 of the difference in these temperatures. The 0°…+100° range on the Fahrenheit scale roughly corresponds to the -18°…+38° range on the Celsius scale. Zero on this scale is defined by the freezing temperature of a 1:1:1 mixture of water, ice, and ammonia, and 96 °F is the normal human body temperature.
