Celsius

The term 'Celsius' as it applies to the area of Earth observation can be defined as ' Temperature scale proposed by Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius in 1742. A mixture of ice and water is zero on the scale; boiling water is designated as 100 degrees. A degree is defined as one hundredth of the difference between the two reference points, resulting in the original term, 'centigrade' (100th part). To convert celsius to Fahrenheit: multiply the celsius temperature by 1.8 and add 32 degrees. F = 9/5 C + 32 To convert Fahrenheit to celsius: subtract 32 degrees from the Fahrenheit temperature and divide the quantity by 1.8. C = (F -32) / 1.8'.

The term 'Celsius' as it applies to the area of the weather can be defined as ' The standard scale used to measure temperature in most areas outside the United States. On this scale, the freezing point of water is 0F and the boiling point is 100F. To convert a Fahrenheit temperature to Celsius, subtract 32 from it and then multiply by 5/9: C = (F - 32) * 5/9 '.
