How do I convert Celsius to Fahrenheit? And Fahrenheit to Celsius? If you've ever followed a baking recipe, you've probably seen temperatures given in different units. From oven conversion chart to formulas, this guide will teach you everything on converting °C to °F and °F to °C.

## Oven temperature calculator

There are three main temperature scale systems. Depending on where you live, oven temperature may be expressed in degree **Celsius (°C)**, **Fahrenheit (°F)**, or **Gas Marks**. The Celsius scale is the standard unit system, used in most countries around the world. With exception of the United States, the Bahamas, and the Cayman Islands, where baking temperatures are in Fahrenheit. The Gas Marks, instead, are commonly used in the United Kingdom and in Ireland.

When it comes to baking, you will often need to convert 180 C to F, 200 C to F, or 200 F to C and 350 F to C. These are some of the most popular conversions, but not the only ones. After a brief mathematical walkthrough, you will find a complete **Fahrenheit to Celsius chart** and a **Celsius to Fahrenheit chart**.

## How to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius

Translating an oven temperature in Fahrenheit to Celsius involves a simple mathematical formula. To convert Fahrenheit to Celsius, you first subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature, then multiply the result by 5, and finally divide by 9. Here's the conversion formula:

$$C=\frac{5}{9}(F-32)$$C represents the temperature in degree Celsius and F represents the temperature in degree Fahrenheit. Here's a breakdown of the formula, with step-by-step directions:

- Subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature
- Multiply the result of the subtraction by 5
- Divide the result of the multiplication by 9

For example, if we want to convert 200 degrees F to C, we would use the oven temperature conversion formula as follows:

$$C=\frac{5}{9}(\mathrm{200}-32)$$**Step 1.**200−32 = 168**Step 2.**168 x 5 = 840**Step 3.**840 / 9 = 93

## How to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit

If you want to convert degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit, you will need to slightly update the previous formula. To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, you first multiply the Celsius temperature by 9, then divide the result by 5, and finally you add 32. Here's the formula:

$$F=\frac{9}{5}C+32$$F represents the temperature in degree Fahrenheit and C represents the temperature in degree Celsius. Here's a breakdown of the formula:

- Multiply Celsius degrees by 9
- Divide the result of the multiplication by 5
- Add 32 to the result of the division

Let's make an example, so that the maths gets clearer to understand. If we want to convert 180 deg C to F, we would use the formula as follows:

$$F=\frac{9}{5}\mathrm{180}+32$$**Step 1.**180 x 9 = 1,620**Step 2.**1,620 / 5 = 324**Step 3.**324 + 32 = 356
