## About Fahrenheit and Fahrenheit scale

The degree Fahrenheit is a non-metric unit of measurement for temperature.

The Fahrenheit scale is a temperature scale named after the famous physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686-1736). On the Fahrenheit scale, the freezing temperature of water corresponds to 32 degrees Fahrenheit while the boiling temperature of water corresponds to 212 degrees Fahrenheit at normal pressure (1 atmosphere).

Degrees Fahrenheit are widely used in the United States and Canada for reporting and/or measuring temperatures in a non-scientific context, such as weather reports and cooking.
