Thirty-two degrees Celsius is the equivalent of 89.6 degrees Fahrenheit. To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, multiply the Celsius temperature by 1.8, and then add 32. In this example, 32 X 1.8 = 57.6, and 57.6 + 32 = 89.6.


In the Fahrenheit scale, 32 degrees is the freezing point of water at standard atmospheric pressure, and 212 degrees is its boiling point. The freezing and boiling points are 180 degrees apart. In the Celsius scale, the two points are 100 degrees apart. Water freezes at 0 degrees and boils at 100 degrees. While 32 degrees in the Fahrenheit scale is cold enough to freeze water, it is a warm temperature in the Celsius scale.
