Scale information

Newton

The Newton scale is a temperature scale named after the English physicist, mathematician (and more) Isaac Newton (1642-1726), who devised it around 1700. He defined "zeroth degrees of heat" as melting snow and "33 degrees of heat" as boiling water.

Réaumur

The Réaumur scale (also known as "octogesimal division") is a temperature scale named after the French scientist René Antoine Ferchault de Réaumur (1683-1757), who first proposed something similar in 1730. The freezing point of water is set at 0°Ré and the boiling point at 80°Ré.
