 # Convert 195 c to f: Celsius to Fahrenheit Conversion

To convert 195 c to f, you need to understand the temperature conversion process first. The Celsius and Fahrenheit were two types of temperature scales used to measure the temperature in your body, objects and atmosphere. Just like we can convert measuring units from Metre to centimetre, we can also convert temperature scales from Celsius to Fahrenheit or vice versa.

Let’s start from basics and then we will talk about the conversion of 195 c to f.

## What is Temperature?

Sometimes we feel extremely hot or cold in our body and get a fever. When we open the refrigerator to eat something, we feel a cold breeze and every season, our body feels hot in summer to cold in winter. There are places, where a person can’t even survive, like cold mountain areas and hot deserts. So what do you think it is? Temperature. It indicates the flow or pressure of hotness and coldness and how low or high it is.

## Temperature Measurement

You will need a scale to measure the temperature with accurate results.

To measure the accurate temperature, you need a device known as Thermometer. ‘Thermo’ is derived from ‘Thermal’ which means ‘Heat’ and ‘Meter’ is derived from ‘Metron’ which means ‘To Measure’. So basically Thermometer is a Heat Measurement device. There are three types of temperature scales : Celsius (expressed as °C), Fahrenheit (expressed as °F) and Kelvin (expressed as K). You can use any of these scales to measure and convert temperature like converting 195 c to f, conversion from F to C, C to F, C to K, K to F, F to K and K to C is based on numerical values and formulas.

Mercury

Mercury is a chemical substance which is used to measure the temperature, it is present in the capillary tube of thermometer. In liquid state, it changes its volumes at different ranges when it gets in contact with a temperature.

Thermometer

German physicist and biologist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit invented Thermometer, when he observed the temperature and human health problems related to change in body temperature. He experimented with different substances and came up with Mercury. There are various types of Thermometers to measure the temperature as mentioned below :

1. Clinical Thermometer : As the name suggests, it is meant for Clinical purposes. It is developed to measure the human body temperature. The Clinical thermometer Measurement ranges from 35˚C to 42˚C as the normal temperature in the human body is 37˚C and can fluctuate from time to time. The Mercury level measures our temperature in ˚C which also stands for Centigrade. You must sterilise the thermometer after every use to prevent infections and inaccurate temperature. The Chemical element Mercury used in this temperature is a toxic substance and you should avoid damaging your thermometer.
2. Laboratory Thermometer : The range of Clinical thermometers are limited to 42˚C and for laboratory purposes, you need to use a thermometer with a wide temperature range. Laboratory Thermometers are developed to measure temperature higher than the temperature of a human body. It is used for experiments and chemical reaction processes. It ranges from -10˚C to 110˚C. This thermometer has the following uses :-
• Checking Boiling point
• Checking Freezing point
• Chemical reaction
• Checking temperature of solvents
• Checking temperature of substances
1. Digital Thermometer : Mercury is an extremely toxic substance, which is hazardous to human health. Since the thermometer is made of glass, it can break easily allowing the mercury to react with the atmosphere. To avoid this problem, Digital thermometers are developed to measure the temperature. It works on the electronic circuit heat reaction and gives an accurate measurement.
2. Infrared Ear Thermometer : When you check the temperature of the ear, it is called Tympanic Membrane Temperature. This thermometer uses infrared energy to check the temperature inside the ear. It is small in size according to the size of an ear. You need to clean this thermometer before and after using it to avoid ear infection.

## Temperature Conversion & Why?

Temperature Conversion is a process of changing the temperature values from one scale to another. We measure temperature in Celsius, Fahrenheit and Kelvin to compare the specific temperature range in different scales to get accurate results and avoid any mistakes like in the medical field as the misinformation can lead to death of a patient. There are many ways in which conversion takes place :

• Between Celsius and Kelvin.
• Between Celsius and Fahrenheit,
• Between Fahrenheit and Kelvin.

Difference Between C, F & K

1. Celcius : Known as centigrade, Celsius is a temperature measuring scale with 0 degree for freezing point and 100 degrees for boiling point. The Celsius scale is based on the Metric system.
2. Fahrenheit : Fahrenheit is a temperature measuring scale with freezing point at 32 degrees and boiling point at 212 degrees.It is used in the US.
3. Kelvin : Kelvin temperature measurement scale is also known as Absolute scale as its range starts from absolute zero where atoms do not move. It is used for Scientific calculations and experiments. Kelvin is the base temperature unit at the International System of Units.

Scale conversion formulas

• Celsius to Fahrenheit : X multiplied by 9, divided by 5 and added by 32.
• Fahrenheit to Celsius : Subtract 32 from X, Multiply by 5 and divide by 9.
• Celsius to Kelvin : Add 273 to X.
• Kelvin to Celsius : Subtract 273 from X.
• Fahrenheit to Kelvin : X subtracted by 32, multiplied by 5, Divided by 9 and added by 273.15.
• Kelvin to Fahrenheit : Subtract 273.15 from X, Multiply it by 1.8 and add 32.
