1. ## 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 0º it's ice , at 100º the kettle boils.

Hello David L., Thank you for your help!

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