Fahrenheit

The Fahrenheit scale is a temperature scale based on one proposed in 1724 by German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit. It uses the degree Fahrenheit as the unit. Several accounts of how he originally defined his scale exist. The lower defining point, 0 ℉, was established as the freezing temperature of a solution of brine made from equal parts of ice, water and a salt. Further limits were established as the melting point of ice and his best estimate of the average human body temperature. The scale is now usually defined by two fixed points: the temperature at which water freezes into ice is defined as 32 ℉, and the boiling point of water is defined to be 212 ℉, a 180 ℉ separation, as defined at sea level and standard atmospheric pressure.
