Temperature Conversion and Density Slope-intercept form of the linear equation for °F & °C temperature conversion: Slope = m = y/ x = rise/run = y Δ Δ 2 -y 1 /x 2 -x 1 = (212-32°F)/(100-0°C) = 180°F / 100°C = 9°F / 5°C = 1.8 °F/°C Solve the T F equation for T C : Subtract 32°F from both sides of the equation: T F - 32°F = 9/5 (T C ) Now remove the 9/5 by multiplying both sides by 5/9 (5°C/9°F)(T F - 32°F) = T C So, you don’t need to memorize a temperature conversion equation, as long as you know that water melts at 0°C (= 32°F) and water boils at 100°C (= 212°F)
