Solution 3E Step 1 of 5: Let the two fahrenheit scale temperatures be T and T and corresponding celsius F1 F2 equivalent be T C1and T C2 respectively. Equation for converting temperature from fahrenheit to celsius is, T c (T9 F2 )…………….1 Where T and T are the temperatures in celsius and fahrenheit scale respectively. c F Equation to calculate the change in celsius scale, T C (final temperature) (initial temperature) T = T T ……………...2 C C2 C1
