Scale information

Fahrenheit

The Fahrenheit scale is a temperature scale named after the German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686-1736), who proposed it in 1724. The freezing point of water is set at 32°F and the boiling point at 212°F (at standrd atmospheric pressure).

Celsius

The Celsius scale (also known as centigrade) is a temperature scale named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701-1744), who developed a similar scale. From 1744 until 1954 0°C was defined as the freezing point of water and 100°C as the boiling point (at standard atmospheric pressure).
