›› Definition: Celsius

The degree Celsius (įC) is a unit of temperature named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701Ė1744), who first proposed a similar system in 1742. The Celsius temperature scale was designed so that the freezing point of water is 0 degrees, and the boiling point is 100 degrees at standard atmospheric pressure.
