Temperature Conversion Worksheets e-Book Set

The Temperature Conversion exercise sets provide options to convert Fahrenheit to Celsius or Celsius to Fahrenheit. There is also a mixture of both conversions.

The first e-book contains 10 pages – 5 pages with 10 exercises per page, for a total of 50 Fahrenheit to Celsius exercises and 5 pages with 10 exercises per page, for a total of 50 Celsius to Fahrenheit exercises.

The second e-book is similar, only the exercises are “mixed”, in that each page has a combination of both types of conversions. This e-book contains 5 pages of mixed exercises with 10 exercises per page.

Doing these exercises helps you to enable your mind to have the ability to quickly translate temperatures without needing pen and paper to do the calculations!

The pages are easy on your printer ink, are small in file size and can be used to print the exercises countless times!

Temperature Conversion Instructions

*Note: The instructions are also included in the e-book. Also, in each e-book, following the exercises you have answer sheets to check the answer with.

You can convert degrees Fahrenheit to degrees Celsius or vice versa by using simple addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. Next time you’re given the temperature in the wrong scale, you’ll be able to convert it in just a matter of seconds!

Fahrenheit to Celsius

1. Understand the scales. The Fahrenheit and Celsius scales begin at a different number—where 0 degrees Celsius is freezing, that equivalent temperature in Fahrenheit is 32 degrees. In addition to starting at a different temperature, the two scales rise at different rates as well. For instance, the range from freezing to boiling in degrees Celsius is 0-100 degrees, and the same range in degrees Fahrenheit is 32-212 degrees.

2. Subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature. Since freezing for Fahrenheit is 32 and freezing for Celsius is 0, you begin the conversion by subtracting 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature. For example, if your initial Fahrenheit temperature is 74 degrees F, just subtract 32 from 74. 74-32 = 42.

3. Divide the result by 1.8. The range for freezing to boiling in Celsius is 0-100 whereas it’s 32-212 in Fahrenheit. This is the same as saying that for every 180° Fahrenheit range, there is only a 100 degree Celsius range. You can express that as 180/100, which when simplified equals 1.8, so to finish the conversion you must divide by 1.8.For the example from step one, divide your result, 42, by 1.8. 42/1.8 = 23 degrees C. Therefore, 74 degrees F can be converted to 23 degrees C.

Note that 1.8 is the equivalent of 9/5. If you don’t have a calculator or prefer working with fractions, you can divide your result from the first step by 9/5 instead of 1.8. Check your answer. Here are a few conversions so you can see whether your result makes sense. If you get a result that doesn’t fit this scale, check your math again. You may have forgot to subtract before dividing.

• -40 F = -40 C
• 0 F = -18 C
• 32 F = 0 C
• 60 F = 16 C
• 100 F = 38 C
• 150 F = 66 C
• 212 F = 100 C

Celsius to Fahrenheit

1. Understand the scales. Since the same rules in the scale differences apply when converting Celsius to Fahrenheit as the opposite, you’ll still be using the difference of 32 and the scale difference of 1.8. You just use them in the reverse order.

2. Multiply the Celsius temperature by 1.8. If instead, you want to convert the temperature from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, you can simply reverse the process. Begin by multiplying the Celsius temperature by 1.8. For example, if you’re working with the temperature 30 degrees C, you should first multiply it by 1.8, or 9/5. 30 x 1.8 = 54.

Add 32 to the result. Now that you have corrected for the differences in scale, you still must correct for the difference in starting points as in step one. To do this, add 32 to the Celsius x 1.8 temperature, and you will have the final temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.Add 32 to 54, which was the result from step 3. 54 + 32 = 86 degrees F. Therefore, 30 degrees C is equivalent to 86 degrees F.

Check your answer. Here are temperature conversion samples to see whether your result makes sense. If you get a result that doesn’t fit this scale, check your math again. You may have forgot to subtract before dividing.

• -40 C = -40 F
• 0 C = 32 F
• 15 C = 59 F
• 60 C = 16 F
• 30 C = 86 F
• 60 C = 140 F
• 100 C = 212 F

A more general way to compare the two is to realize that every 5 degrees C equals 9 degrees F. Furthermore, given the 1.8 conversion factor, each 1 degree C difference equals 1.8 degree F, with that idea highlighted in the 10-15 degree C range. If one rounds the Fahrenheit values, the difference in Fahrenheit from the nearest 5 or 10 degrees C has the pattern 2,4,5,7. Example: 7 C in F (rounded) is 45 = 41 + 4 to = 50-5.
