## Fahrenheit to Celsius

The Celsius scale is standard in most parts of the world. If you have a temperature in Fahrenheit and want to convert it to Celsius, use the following formula:

**°C = ((°F - 32) x 5) / 9**

**Example**: 68 °F in °C: ((68 - 32) x 5) / 9 = 20 °C

## Fahrenheit in Kelvin

The Kelvin scale is the SI unit for temperature and is mainly used in science. The conversion from Fahrenheit to Kelvin takes place in two steps. First you convert Fahrenheit to Celsius and then from Celsius to Kelvin.

Formula for converting Celsius to Kelvin: **K = °C 273.15**

**Example**: For a temperature of 68°F, which was first converted to 20 °C: 20 273.15 = 293.15 K

Fahrenheit to Kelvin: **((°F - 32) x 5) / 9 273.15**

## Fahrenheit in Rankine

The Rankine scale is an absolute temperature scale used in some technical fields in the USA. To convert from Fahrenheit to Rankine, use the formula: **R = °F 459.67**

Example: For a temperature of 68 °F: 68 459.67 = 527.67 R

## Conclusion

The conversion between Fahrenheit and other temperature units can be done using simple formulas. It is important to take into account the respective areas of application and the geographical distribution of the different temperature units. With the knowledge of these conversions, you can ensure that you can use the correct temperature in every situation.
