Scale information

Delisle

The Delisle scale in a temperature scale named after the French astronomer Joseph-Nicolas Delisle (1688-1768), who invented it in 1732. The freezing point of water is set at 150°D and the boiling point at 0°D.

Kelvin

The Kelvin scale is a thermodynamic (absolute) temperature scale referenced to absolute zero. The kelvin is a unit of measurement for temperature. Both are named after the Belfast-born engineer and physicist William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin (1824-1907), who in 1848 whote of the need for an "absolute thermometric scale". The freezing point of water is set at 273.15K and the boiling point at 373.1339K.
