A hunder degrees C spans the same range as 180 degrees F. So a C degree is 1.8 times as large as a F degree.

Which is smaller increase in temperature a 5 Fahrenheit increase or a 5 Celsius increase?

A 5 degree Fahrenheit increase is less than a 5 degree Celsius increase

Is 5 degrees Fahrenheit increase smaller than 5 degrees Celsius increase?

Yes, it is. One degree Fahrenheit is a small unit than one degree Celsius. The ration is 9 to 5, with 9 degrees Fahrenheit being the same as 5 degrees Celsius.

Is one degree celsius hotter than 1 degree Fahrenheit?

1 degree Fahrenheit is -17.22 degrees Celsius. 1 degree Celsius is 33.8 degrees Fahrenheit. It seems that 1 degree Celsius is hotter.

Which has a greater difference in temperature Celsius degree or Fahrenheit degree?

Celsius degrees are larger than Fahrenheit degrees.

How much Fahrenheit is in one Celsius?

One Celsius degree is 1.8 times larger than one Fahrenheit degree.

The Fahrenheit scale has a blank degree size than the Celsius scale?

same size. Between freezing water and boiling water, there are 180 Fahrenheit degrees (32 to 212) and 100 Celsius degrees (0 to 100). So Fahrenheit degrees are smaller, because it takes more of them to cover the same range of temperature. 1 Fahrenheit degree = 5/9 of a Celsius degree (0.555...) 1 Celsius degree = 1.8 Fahrenheit degrees

Why is it that temperatures at -40 degrees celsius and Fahrenheit are the same?

There are two reasons for this. The first is that a Fahrenheit degree is smaller than a Celsius degree. Four Celsius degrees is the same size as nine Fahrenheit degrees. The second reason is that 32 degrees Fahrenheit is zero degrees Celsius. If you put those two ideas together you figure out that -40°F = -40°C.

What would be a smaller increase in degrees 5 Celsius or 5 Fahrenheit?

5 Fahrenheit is a smaller increase of temperature than 5 Celsius.

Is a degree centigrade greater than a degree Fahrenheit?

Yes. 1 degree of Fahrenheit is 5/9 of a degree Celsius (centigrade)

Are celsius scale degree larger than Fahrenheit degree?

A "degree" on the Celsius scale is larger than a "degree" on the Fahrenheit scale. There are 100 equal intervals (degrees) between 0 °C and 100 °C, the freezing and boiling points of water. There are 180 equal intervals between those same temperatures on the Fahrenheit scale (32 °F and 212 °F). That makes each Celsius degree 1.8 times as large (wide) an interval as the Fahrenheit degree. This is the basis for the "9/5" an "5/9" fractions in the conversion formulas (9/5 = 1.8). Some conversion formulas omit the fractions in favor of multiplying or dividing by 1.8, which is a single step. (see related questions)

When is Fahrenheit lower then Celsius?

After -40 degrees. At -40 degrees, the Celsius and Fahrenheit scales are equal. A temperature greater than -40 in Celsius will be smaller than its equivalent in Fahrenheit, but below -40 degrees Fahrenheit, its equivalent in Celsius will be larger.
