## What is 47 Celsius to Fahrenheit

### Convert degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit

Converting the temperature from Celsius to Fahrenheit is easy enough. Let’s try to convert 47 C to F. Substitute this data into the formula F = (C ? 9/5) + 32 and you get: 1.8*47.0+32=116.60.

The answer to C to F is 116.60. which can be written as follows:

**47 C = 116.60 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: 47*2 + 30 = 124 F. As you can see from the last example, there is an error of over 7°F, so this method can give an approximate indication. Calculating the opposite way, from Fahrenheit to Celsius, the inverse formula must be applied: (124-30)/2 = 47°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?*

**FAQ**

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.

## Interesting Facts

- Scientists from the University of Grenada in Spain studied volunteers using thermography and proved that lying increases the temperature of the face – in the corners of the eyes and at the tip of the nose.
- The coldest temperature in our system is recorded on the Moon: in some craters in the shadow, the temperature is only 30 Kelvin above absolute zero. This temperature is lower than the temperature of Pluto!
- Man’s lowest temperature is between 3 and 5 a.m., and his highest temperature is between 4 and 6 p.m.
- Higher temperatures may be due to stress.
- The highest temperature created by man was 4 billion degrees Celsius. It is hard to believe that the temperature of matter can reach such an incredible level! This temperature is 250 times the temperature of the Sun’s core.
- Heat is a mechanical property of the material. The hotter the object, the more energy its particles have as they move. Atoms of substances in a hot solid state vibrate faster than atoms of the same but cooled substances.
- The temperature in the core of our planet is about the same as the surface temperature of the Sun. The hottest planet in the solar system is Jupiter, whose core temperature is 5 times higher than the surface temperature of the Sun.
- Absolute zero is the temperature below which it is impossible to go. And what is the highest possible temperature? Science is not yet able to answer this question precisely.
- The temperature standard of 36.6 degrees on the Celsius scale was derived in 1868. Temperatures were measured in 25,000 patients and 36.6 was the average. With the advent of more accurate thermometers, it was found that the normal temperature was 36.8 to 37.4 degrees Celsius.
