11 degrees Centigrade is 51.8 degrees Fahrenheit. Centigrade and Celsius are the same measurements, and more modern conversions of Fahrenheit readings. 11 degrees Centigrade is also 248.15 Kelvin.

To work out Celsius or Centigrade to Fahrenheit you simply times the temperature in Centigrade by 1.8 and then add 32. The result is the degree in Fahrenheit. Simply reverse the process to get Fahrenheit into Centigrade; temperature in Fahrenheit minus 32 and divided by 1.8.

Fahrenheit is the oldest of the common temperature reading scales. It was proposed in 1724 by the Dutch-German-Polish physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit. In most countries it is Celsius that is the main scale of temperature reading, but in the United States, Thailand and Belize it's still the official measurement, and commonly used as a secondary measurement in the UK and Canada. Resistance to Celsius, especially in the US, is attributed to the fact that Fahrenheit is more specific and technically accurate than Celsius.

Centigrade followed Fahrenheit as a more simplistic stepped measurement, changing to Celsius with subsequent metrication. Celsius, like Fahrenheit, is named after its inventor - Anders Celsius. Celsius' unit of measurement, as earlier stated, was known as centigrade; from the Latin 'centum' translated as 100 and 'gradus' translated as 'steps'.

Celsius actually had the thermometer in reverse though, with zero degrees Celsius as boiling and 100 degrees as freezing. Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus commissioned the production of some of these thermometers for his greenhouses, but switched 0 degrees C and 100 degrees C around.

When you convert eleven degrees centigrade to Fahrenheit the result you will get is 51.8 degree Fahrenheit. Usually you will find that the temperature is being described in both these units and when it comes to the TV news channels, they put more emphasis on the use of Celsius or centigrade instead of Fahrenheit.

Several reasons can be cited for the use of centigrade or Celsius instead of Fahrenheit and prime among them is that centigrade or Celsius is a bigger than that of the Fahrenheit and when higher temperature is being expressed in this unit, it is not expected to create panic and message can be reached to people easily. As it is written earlier that TV shows more often the Celsius thing, it is because they are a medium that connect well to people and the message they show reach to people very fast.
