Fahrenheit

A scale of temperature introduced in about 1709 by the German physicist, Fahrenheit, who was the first to use mercury as the thermometric substance. Primary fixed points were the temperatures of a mixture of common salt and ice and the temperature of the human body; with reference to these the freezing point of water was marked 32 degrees, and the ...

Fahrenheit: Thermometer scale in which the freezing point of water is 32°F and the boiling point of water 212°F. The Fahrenheit scale is still obstinately in use in the US. This anachronism requires conversion from Centigrade (°C) to Fahrenheit (°F), and vice versa. One degree °C = (5/9)(°F - 32). One degree °F = (9/5)(°C) + 32. Named for G...
