### Temperature Scale Systems

What are the different temperature scale systems?

Several temperature systems are commonly used around the world. For the purpose of this post, we’ll be focusing on Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Gas Mark.

1. Celsius (℃): The Celsius scale is used in the majority of countries around the world, and it is the preferred temperature scale in scientific and technical contexts.
2. Fahrenheit (℉): The Fahrenheit scale is still commonly used in the United States and other countries, including the Bahamas, Belize, and the Cayman Islands.
3. Gas Mark (Mk): The Gas Mark scale is commonly used in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and other countries that use ovens with gas burners.

### What is Celsius?

The Celsius (℃) scale is used in most countries around the world, including Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia. It is also known as the centigrade scale and is named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius, who developed the scale in the 18th century.

The Celsius scale is based on the freezing and boiling points of water. On this scale, the freezing point of water is 0 degrees Celsius, and the boiling point of water is 100 degrees Celsius.

Celsius is a common unit of temperature measurement used in baking and cooking recipes. Many recipes, especially those from European countries, use Celsius to specify the oven temperature needed for baking or cooking.

Temperatures on the Celsius scale are measured in degrees, and they can be positive or negative. Positive temperatures indicate that the substance is above freezing, while negative temperatures indicate that the substance is below freezing.

### What is Fahrenheit?

Fahrenheit (℉) is a temperature scale most widely used in the United States and a few other countries. It is named after the German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit, who invented the temperature scale in 1724.

On the Fahrenheit scale, the freezing point of water is 32 degrees and the boiling point of water is 212 degrees, at standard atmospheric pressure. The difference between the two reference points is divided into 180 equal parts or degrees, which makes the size of each degree on the Fahrenheit scale smaller than that on the Celsius scale.

Fahrenheit is used in everyday life for measuring outdoor temperatures, cooking and baking temperatures, and in some industries, such as HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning). However, in most countries around the world, the Celsius scale is used as the primary temperature scale for scientific and technical purposes.

### What is Gas Mark?

Gas mark is a temperature scale used in cooking, especially in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and some Commonwealth countries. It is used to indicate the temperature of an oven in terms of the gas mark number, which corresponds to a specific temperature range.

The gas mark scale ranges from 1 to 9. Gas mark 1 corresponds to a temperature of 140°C (275°F), while gas mark 9 corresponds to a temperature of 240°C (475°F). The temperatures for each gas mark vary slightly depending on the type of oven and the manufacturer, so it is always best to consult your oven’s manual for specific guidelines.

Gas mark temperatures are often used in baking recipes, particularly for cakes, breads, and pastries, to ensure that the oven is at the correct temperature for the recipe.

### A Guide To Cooking With Temperatures

Knowing the right temperature to use when cooking and baking is essential. Some recipes and projects specify the temperature in Fahrenheit (℉), while others use Celsius (℃) or gas mark.

In general, baking temperatures range from around 150°C (or 300°F) for slow and gentle cooking to 230°C (or 450°F) for high-temperature baking, such as for making bread or pizza. It’s important to follow the temperature and timing instructions in the recipe for the best results.

For example, our Peanut Butter Cookies call for the oven to be preheated to 350°F (or 180°C), and this Roasted Cauliflower Steaks recipe requires a higher temperature of 425°F (or 220°C). Knowing how to convert between Fahrenheit and Celsius can be helpful in following recipes from different sources, as some recipes might use one unit of measurement over the other.

Here is a look at the most common oven temperatures and what they are used for in the kitchen…

250°F is equivalent to 130°C, or gas mark 1/2. This temperature is often used for slow-cooking or warming dishes.

### Mathematical Formula

When you need to make degree ℉ and ℃ conversions, here is the mathematical formula for quickly converting Celsius to Fahrenheit and reverse:

#### How To Convert Celsius to Fahrenheit (℃ to ℉)

To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, use the following formula:

°F = (°C × 1.8) + 32

Here’s how to use the formula:

1. Take the temperature in Celsius that you want to convert.
2. Multiply it by 1.8.
3. Add 32 to the result.
4. The final number is the temperature in Fahrenheit.

For example, if the recipe calls for a baking temperature of 180°C, you can convert it to Fahrenheit using the formula:
°F = (180 × 1.8) + 32
°F = 324 + 32
°F = 356

As you can see, the baking temperature in Fahrenheit would be 356°F. We can then round it down to 350°F for our purpose.

#### How To Convert Fahrenheit to Celsius (℉ to ℃)

To convert Fahrenheit (℉) to Celsius (℃), you can use the following formula:

(℉ – 32) ÷ 1.8 = ℃

1. Start by subtracting 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature you want to convert.
2. Divide the result by 1.8.
3. The resulting number is the temperature in Celsius.
