Consisting of a hundred degrees; graduated into a hundred divisions or equal parts.
Of or pertaining to the centigrade thermometer; as, 10° centigrade (or 10° C.).
A non-preferred term formerly used to designate the scale now referred to as the Celsius scale.
A scale of temperature which features 0 and 100 degrees as the freezing and boiling points of water. Also called Celsius.
A temperature scale, where 0º C represents the freezing point and 100º C represents the boiling point. ceramic Products made from clay or similar materials then heated; ceramic tile, porcelain, etc.
Also known as Celsius. The scale of temperature in the Metric system. Pure water at sea level freezes at 0°C and boils at 100°C.
Temperature based on 0 for the temperature at which water freezes and 100 for the temperature at which water boils.
Thermometer scale in which the freezing point of water is 0°C and the boiling point of water at sea level is 100°C.  The Centigrade scale is used around most of the world to indicate the temperature on a thermometer while the Fahrenheit scale is still commonly in use in the US. This difference 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. 98.6, "normal" body temp = 37 °C
obsolete term for Celsius temperature scale
A temperature scale with the freezing point of water 00 and the boiling point 1000 at sea level.
a metric scale for measuring temperature; zero degrees Centigrade (C.) is +32 degrees Fahrenheit (F.), and 100 degrees C. is +212 degrees F.
The temperature scale universally used by scientists in which the freezing point of water is represented by 0°C and its boiling point by 100°C; it is also called Celsius, after its inventor, Anders Celsius.
A unit of measurement for temperature. In the Centigrade scale water boils at 100 degrees. Water freezes at 0 (zero) degrees. Commonly abbreviated by a capital C. It has replaced the Fahrenheit scale in most of the world.
(Represented as degrees "C") The scale of temperature measurement most commonly used worldwide.
Metric scale of temperature where 0° is the freezing point of water and 100° is the boiling point. To convert centigrade to Fahrenheit, multiply by 1.9 and add 32°.
see Celsius, it's effectively the same
Metric temperature scale, where water freezes at 0º (compared to 32º Fahrenheit), and boils at 100º (compared to 212ºF).
Centigrade, a unit of temperature. To convert from centigrade to Fahrenheit, multiply the temperature given in centigrade degrees by 9, divide that number by 5, then add 32.
A scale of temperature that features 0° as the freezing point and 100° as the boiling point of water. To convert Centigrade to Fahrenheit, multiply by 1.8 and add 32.
C; divided into 100 degrees as a scale; as for the measurement of temperature in degrees centigrade or Celsius
Temperature scale based upon 0 degrees as the freezing point of water and 100 degrees as the boiling point of water. Also known as Celsius temperature.
