Temperature Converter
To practice using JavaScript expressions, control
structures, and operators
For this lab you will need to create a javascript script which will prompt a user
to enter a temperature in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. Your script will then
need to determine which type of temperature was entered and then convert the
temperature to the other units and display that converted temperature for the
When the user is prompted to enter a temperature with a prompt() statement
the user should be told to enter the units following the temperature as either F
or C (for example 98.6F). Your program will then need to determine which was
entered. If the user neglects to specify a unit, an error can be displayed in
place of the converted temperature.
To perform the conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit: Multiply the Celsius temperature time 1.8 and add 32
(F = C * 1.8 + 32)
To perform the conversion from Fahrenheit to Celsius: Subtract 32 from the Fahrenheit temperature and then Multiply times .55
(C = (F – 32) * .55)
