## About Celsius and Celsius scale

The degree Celsius, sometimes called simply degree or degree centigrade, is a unit of temperature.

The Celsius scale is a temperature scale named after the famous astronomer Anders Celsius (1701-1744). On the Celsius (or centigrade) temperature scale, 0 °C correspond to the freezing temperature of water while 100 °C correspond to the boiling temperature of water at normal pressure (1 atmosphere).

The Celsius scale (or centigrade scale) is widely used in the world for most temperature measurement purposes.
