# 36.5 Celsius to Fahrenheit

Before doing the conversion:36.5 Celsius to Fahrenheit, here is a small definition of Celsius & Fahrenheit.

## Celsius

Although originally defined as the point of freezing water (and later the melting point of ice), the Celsius scale is now officially a derived scale, defined in relation to the Kelvin temperature scale.

On the Celsius scale zero (0 ° C) is now defined as equal to 273.15 K, with a temperature difference of 1 ° C equivalent to a difference of 1 K, that is to say the size unit on each scale is the same. This means that 100 ° C, previously defined as the water boiling point, is now defined as the equivalent of 373.15 K.

The Celsius scale is an interval system, not a reporting system, which means it follows a relative scale, not an absolute scale. It can be seen that because the temperature range between 20 ° C and 30 ° C is the same as between 30 ° C and 40 ° C, but 40 ° C is not double
= ℉
℃ * 1.8000
+ 32.00

## Fahrenheit

Fahrenheit is a thermodynamic temperature scale, where the water is freezing point to 32 degrees Fahrenheit (° F) and the boiling point to 212 ° F (at normal atmospheric pressure). This separates the boiling and freezing points of water exactly 180 degrees. Therefore, a degree on the Fahrenheit scale represents 1/180 of the range between the freezing point and the boiling point of water. Absolute zero is defined as equal to 459.67 ° F.

A difference of temperature of 1 ° F is equivalent to a difference in temperature of 0,556 ° C.

So 36.5 Celsius = 97.7 Fahrenheit
