1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data the fahrenheit temp scale is defined to that ice melts at 32 F and water boils at 212 F. Derive formulas for converting fahrenheit to celsius and back. 2. Relevant equations c=5/9(f-32) 3. The attempt at a solution ok so i figured that 212-32= 180 and 100-0=100 so the ratio of c/f= 5/9 i don't know how to get the 32 part into the equation
0C=32F. So a fahrenheit temperature f is (f-32) fahrenheit degrees above 0C. Now just convert the (f-32) fahrenheit degrees to celsius degrees.
