## Related Questions The difference between Celsius and Fahrenheit is that in Celsius, the freezing point of water is 0 degrees Celsius and the boiling point is 100 degrees Celsius. In Fahrenheit, the freezing point of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit and the boiling point of water is 212 degrees Fahrenheit.  The boiling point of water is 212oF and the freezing point is 32oF, so the difference is 212oF - 32oF = 180oF.  On the Celsius scale, the freezing point is 0&deg;C and the boiling point 100&deg;C. On the Fahrenheit scale, the freezing point is 32&deg;F and the boiling point 212&deg;F. The difference between the freezing and boiling point of water on the Fahrenheit scale is equal to (9 / 5) x 100 = 180 degrees. The freezing point of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit, or zero degrees Celsius, while the boiling point of water is 212 degrees Fahrenheit, or 100 degrees Celsius. freezing point is 32&deg; Fahrenheit, boiling point is 212&deg; Fahrenheit at sea level. Fahrenheit: freezing: 32 degrees boiling: 212 degrees Celsius: freezing: 0 degrees boiling: 100 degrees for Fahrenheit 212 degree is boiling and 32 is freezing so u do 212-32 and u get 180 for Celsius 100d is boiling and 0 is freezing so its 100 between There is not a constant difference. At the freezing point of water, 0 deg Celsius = 32 deg Fahrenheit - a difference of 32. At the boiling point of water = 100 deg C = 212 deg F, the difference is 180.  Boiling points and melting points differ for different elements and compounds. However, if water is considered, the freezing point is 0 degree Celsius which is 32 degree Fahrenheit. Boiling point is 100 degree Celsius which is 212 degree Fahrenheit. According to Fahrenheit scale, freezing point of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit (&deg;F) and boiling point is 212 &deg;F Apparently to have a 100 degree scale between freezing and boiling. Fahrenheit has the freezing point at 32 degrees and boiling at 212 degrees. However, in Celsius, the freezing point is 0 degrees and the boiling point is 100 degrees. The freezing temperature of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit and boiling point of water is 212 degrees Fahrenheit. So freezing points and boiling points are not the same.  Fahrenheit is a person or a temperature scale, while boiling and freezing points are physical properties of chemicals. You need to be specific in asking which chemical's boiling and freezing points. Water has a freezing point of 32 degrees F, and a boiling point of 212 degrees F. No, they are different. For example: The freezing point of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit, while the boiling point is 212 degrees Fahrenheit. Fahrenheit:Freezing = 32 degreesBoiling = 212 degrees--------------------------------------Celsius:Freezing = 0 degreesBoiling = 100 degrees-------------------------------------- Accounting for water: freezing is 32 degrees and boiling is 212 degrees. The midway point would be 122 degrees Fahrenheit. Freezing point is 0 degrees celsius, and boiling point is 100 degrees celsius. The freezing point of water is 0oC / 32oF - The boiling point is 100oC / 212oF Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit divided boiling &amp; freezing point of water exactly 180degrees apart. Every degree on Fahrenheit scale is 1/180th part of interval between freezing point and boiling point of water. Physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit worked on his temperature scale in the years prior to 1724. He first established freezing points for a salty mixture as 0&deg; and the boiling point of water at 60&deg;. He adjusted this scale several times, eventually establishing 64 degree intervals between freezing and human body temperature. Later scientists refined this to the modern usages of 32&deg; (water freezes), 98.6&deg; (normal human body) and 212&deg; (water boils). The Fahrenheit scale allowed scientific observations of reactions that varied with temperature. The difference between the freezing and boiling temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit and centigrade (Celsius) are a matter of scale. With Fahrenheit, the degrees number 180 intervals between water freezing and boiling. With centigrade the freezing and boiling points were first defined as 0&deg; and 100&deg;C and the degree intervals made exactly 1/100 of the difference. ###### TemperatureThe Difference BetweenMath and ArithmeticSchool SubjectsChemistryScienceInventionsUnits of MeasureSnow LeopardsHistory of Science Copyright © 2020 Multiply Media, LLC.
