No, it is not. A Celsius degree equals 1.8 Fahrenheit degrees.

## Related Questions It is important to know how to change Fahrenheit to Celsius. A 10 degree temperature change on the Fahrenheit scale would be equivalent to a 6 degree change on the Celsius scale.  The Fahrenheit scale change of 1 degree is smallest when compared to Celsius change. 1.8 degrees Celsius is 1 degree Fahrenheit  A temperature change by one degree on Celsius scale equals temperature change of 1.8 degree on Fahrenheit scale or F (Fahrenheit) = 1.8 C (Celsius) + 32 No, the "degrees" have the same name but are different sizes. (Celsius degrees are larger intervals than Fahrenheit degrees.) A change of 1 degree Celsius is the same as a change of 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit.  Use this formula. Temperature Fahrenheit = Temperature Celsius(1.80) + 32 Example: Say 32 Celsius to Fahrenheit Temperature Fahrenheit = (32 C)(1.80) + 32 = 89.6 degrees Fahrenheit   A degree in the Celsius scale is larger than one in the Fahrenheit scale. Celsius and Fahrenheit. The absolute or thermodynamic temperature, which is used by scientists, is measured in Kelvin - not degrees. A change in temperature of 1 K is equivalent to a change of 1 Celsius degree.  No. A degree celsius is larger than a degree Fahrenheit. 1 degree celsius = 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit Convert the temperature of 22 degrees Fahrenheit into a Celsius scale temperature. 22 degree Fahrenheit = -5.5555556 degree Celsius 32 degrees Fahrenheit = 0 degrees Celsius32 degree Celsius = 89.6 degree Fahrenheit The temperature 1 degree Celsius is 33.8 degrees Fahrenheit.The conversion formula is &deg;F = (&deg;C * 9 / 5) + 32&deg;Degree Intervals in Celsius compared to Fahrenheit : 1 "degree" Celsius = 1.8 "degrees" FahrenheitA "degree" on the Celsius scale is 1.8 times as large as a "degree" on the Fahrenheit scale. A temperature difference on the Fahrenheit scale will be 1.8 times as large a value as the same temperature difference on the Celsius scale. Celsius uses larger intervals for each degree.Example : The freezing point of water is 0 &deg;C and 32 &deg;F. When the temperature increases to 10 &deg;C, the equivalent Fahrenheit change is 18 degrees, to 50 &deg;F.(see related questions)33.8 F A temperature interval of 1 degree Fahrenheit is equal to an interval of 5&frasl;9degrees Celsius. 20 degrees Celsius is 68 degrees Fahrenheit. 45 degrees Celsius is 113 degrees Fahrenheit. So 25 degrees change Celsius = 25 x 1.8 = 45 degrees Fahrenheit. 1 degree change in Celsius is equivalent to 1.8 degrees change in Fahrenheit. Scroll down to related links and look at "Conversion of Temperature Units".    A change of one degree Celsius indicates the same temperature change as a change of (B) one Kelvin. (Isn't it easier to say that Kelvins are the same size as Celsius degrees ?) A temperature of 9 degrees Fahrenheit does not equal 5 degrees Celsius but a change of 9 degrees Fahrenheit equals 5 degrees Celsius. This happen because neither is an absolute scale. Both scales use "degrees" but they are not the same size.Celsius degrees are larger intervals, so a change in "Celsius degrees" is larger than an identical numerical change in "Fahrenheit degrees."A change of 1 Celsius "degree" is the same change as 1.8 Fahrenheit "degrees", as is seen in the difference between the freezing and boiling point of water. 100 Celsius degrees (0&deg; to 100&deg;C) is the same temperature change as 180 Fahrenheit degrees (32&deg; to 212&deg;F).
