A Brief History Of Temperature Measurement:


Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit

Daniel Fahrenheit

The Fahrenheit scale is named after German physicist and inventor Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit who lived from 1686 to 1736. He invented the alcohol thermometer in 1709, and the mercury thermometer in 1714. In 1724, he published a scientific paper about temperature measurement and released the temperature scale that bears his name. He sought to create a temperature scale in which zero corresponded with the coldest temperature normally encountered in Western Europe and one hundred corresponded to the hottest temperature. The system of temperature measurement that Fahrenheit created is only used in the United States and a couple of other countries. It is no longer used by the scientific community. It has one advantage for everyday use and that is that the human body can distinguish a one degree change in temperature in Fahrenheit, making it useful for setting air conditioning temperature.

Anders Celsius

Anders CelsiusThe Celsius temperature scale is also referred to as the "centigrade" scale in some places. Centigrade means "consisting of or divided into one hundred degrees". The Celsius scale was invented by the Swedish Astronomer Anders Celsius  who lived from 1701 to 1744. It consists of  one hundred units of degrees between the freezing point at zero Celsius and boiling point at one hundred Celsius. The boiling point of both assumes pure water at sea level. The term "Celsius" was officially adopted in 1948 the international conference on weights and measures. The Celsius system is used in both science and industry in the United States, despite the fact that the public uses Fahrenheit for everyday use.
