a scale to measure temperature that defines the freezing point of water as 32° and the steam point as 212
Thermodynamic scale of temperature. Temperature in degrees Fahrenheit can be obtained from value in degrees Celsius by the following formula: F = (9C/5) + 32
Temperature scale with the ice point as 32 and the steam point as 212. Thus the temperature in Fahrenheit = 32 +1.8 x the temperature in Celsius.
