In November 2013 the federal government decided to have a 10-euro commemorative coin "300 years Fahrenheit scale" minted. We explain the design by the Baden-Württemberg artist Victor Huster, who succeeded in bringing the milestone in measurement technology - as it is aptly named on the edge of the coin - into the context of the historical development of temperature measurement.

With this converter you can easily convert Fahrenheit to Celsius or vice versa.

Just landed on the JFK, played a little on the cell phone to get the latest news. The first thing that strikes you is that there is more local news than national, a lot of advertising and that Germany or Europe play next to no role in the news. But then the weather report: "We expect rain and fifty degrees." 50 degrees??? Oh, Fahrenheit, but how many Celsius is it?

The two temperature scales were born independently of each other. Fahrenheit is the older one. Fahrenheit drew his inspiration from the same Rømer scale from which Celsius was also inspired.

Put simply, Fahrenheit set a fixed point on its temperature scale with the lowest temperature of a severe winter. For later scientific investigations, he experimented with a cold mixture, the melting temperature of which he defined as zero degrees Fahrenheit. As the upper fixed point, he determined the body temperature of a healthy person to be - no, not 100 - but 96 ° F.

Celsius, on the other hand, and this should be known in Germany, took what is probably the most important substance on earth as the basis of its temperature scale, water. 0 ° C is the temperature of melting ice, 100 ° C is boiling water.

Let's take a look at the fixed points on the Fahrenheit scale:

cold winter:0 ° Fmaybe -20 ° C
Body temperature:around 100 ° Frounded 40 ° C

You can see two things in this. First, that Fahrenheit takes about 100 degrees for about 60 degrees Celsius (the exact value is 90 for 50) and second, that Fahrenheit's efforts to avoid negative temperatures were a shot in the oven.

Memorizing a conversion factor, e.g. 2 or 0.5, as it works for example when converting HP to kW and vice versa, does not fit here, since these temperature scales are not absolute scales and they also have no common starting point to have.

Clearly - donkey bridges are needed!

The fever starts at 100 degrees. A Fahrenheit temperature of 100 degrees corresponds to a Celsius temperature of 37.8 °. In children at least, it is at this temperature that one begins to think about fever-lowering agents.

16 is 61 Rotating numbers are always a special memory aid. 61 ° F is 16 ° C, so at least a cardigan should be worn in weather.

28 is 82 Another twist of numbers. 82 ° F is 28 ° C, so bikini weather. And you should leave it on on the beach in the USA. Topless is not only not welcome there, but can sometimes result in severe penalties. Naturism is not very common.

minus 30 halves One or the other knows thirty halves from the card game Knack (swimming or pig). Subtract 30 degrees from the Fahrenheit temperature and halve the result. So 60 ° F is approx. 15 ° C [(60-30) / 2].

This donkey bridge even delivers the exact value of 10 ° C for 50 ° F. For higher Fahrenheit temperatures, this approximation gives slightly too small values.

Yes. -40 ° F = -40 ° C
