The formula to convert 180 degrees Celsius to Fahrenheit is (9/5)(180 degrees Celsius + 32) = degrees Fahrenheit. The solution to the equation is 381.6 degrees Fahrenheit.
The Fahrenheit scale is used by the United States and some Caribbean countries. It sets the freezing point of water at 32 degrees and the boiling point at 212 degrees. The Celsius scale was phased in to replace the Fahrenheit scale in the late 1960s to help standardize metric measurements. In the Celsius scale, the freezing point of water is 0 degrees and the boiling point is 100 degrees. The Celsius scale is considered easier to use, but 1 degree on the Fahrenheit scale is the temperature change that the average person can detect.
