What is Celsius?

Definition:

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 Celsius (or centigrade) temperature scale, 0°C corresponds to the freezing temperature of water while 100°C corresponds 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 measuring purposes.

Common temperature conversions:

  • 0 degrees Celsius (°C) or centigrade = 273.15 kelvins (K) = 32 degrees Fahrenheit (°F)
  • 21 degrees Celsius (°C) or centigrade = 294.15 kelvins (K) = 69.8 degrees Fahrenheit (°F)
  • 37 degrees Celsius (°C) or centigrade = 310.15 kelvins (K) = 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit (°F)
  • 100 degrees Celsius (°C) or centigrade = 373.15 kelvins (K) = 212 degrees Fahrenheit (°F)
