    f=? (365f)

    How to tell if oil is hot enough for frying
    Drop in a single popcorn kernel at the beginning. When the kernel pops, the oil is between 350 and 365f - exactly the right temperature for deep-frying.
    Hello! What does "f" stand for? Thanks!

    Fahrenheit, the old scale for measuring temperature, whereas centigrade is mainly used these days.

    Boiling point : 212 degrees fahrenheit, 100 degrees centigrade

    Freezing point: 32 degrees fahrenheit, 0 degrees centigrade.

    As you can see, centigrade makes a lot more sense to people in general (as opposed to scientists etc) as it seems to relate directly to what is happening - at 0 it's ice , at 100 the kettle boils.

    Usually it would be given as [for example] 135F or 135C which indicates that it is degrees Fahrenheit or degrees centigrade.
