Making a Fahrenheit to Celsius converter is a simple task. The mathematical formula for converting from Fahrenheit to Celsius is C = (F -- 32) * .55, where C is temperature in Celsius scale, F is temperature in Fahrenheit scale and * represents multiplication. You can input these values into an Excel, Windows Live or Google spreadsheet to get corresponding value in the Celsius scale for a temperature given in the Fahrenheit scale.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open an Excel, Google or Windows Live spreadsheet.

  2. 2

    Type "Fahrenheit" in cell A1, which is the first row and the first column.

  3. 3

    Type "Celsius" in cell B1, which is the first row and the second column.

  4. 4

    Enter the value for the Fahrenheit temperature in cell A2, which is second row and first column, below "Fahrenheit."

  5. 5

    Enter the following formula in cell B2, which is second row and second column: "=(A2-32)*.55" without the quotes. Now the cell below "Celsius" will display the temperature in Celsius scale for any Fahrenheit value that is entered in cell below "Fahrenheit" scale.
