is the unit of temperature using the scale of 100 degrees between the freezing and boiling points of water at one atmosphere, air-pressure. It was formerly called the Centigrade degree. One Celsius degree is 9/ 5 of the Farenheit degree still used in both the United States and Great Britain in 1982.
A scale that measures temperature where water boils at 100ºC and freezes at 0ºC. Between the boiling and freezing points, the scale is divided into 100 parts. People in most countries use Celsius. It is named after Anders Celsius.
The unit of temperature in the SI measuring system. Celsius is the temperature system referenced to the freezing & boiling points of water at sea level; 0 degrees C is freezing, and 100 degrees C is boiling (for water). One degree C is equal to one degree Kelvin (K), but the Kelvin units are referenced to absolute zero. 1 degree C I approximately equal to 0.556 degrees F.
Metric temperature scale and unit of temperature (°C). Named for Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701-1744) although the thermometer first advocated by him in 1743 had 100° as the freezing point of water, and 0° as the boiling point, the reverse of the modern Celsius scale. Also called the Centigrade scale (Latin for "hundred degrees").
The metric temperature scale in which water freezes at zero degrees and boils at 100 degrees, designated by the symbol "C". To convert to Fahrenheit, multiply a Celsius temperature by 9, divide by 5 and add 32 (25 x 9 equals 225, divided by 5 equals 45, plus 32 equals 77 degrees Fahrenheit).
A temperature scale referenced to absolute zero. Pure water freezes at 0°C and boils at 100°C (at one atmosphere of pressure). To convert °C to °F, multiply by 1.8 and add 32. Celsius and Kelvin have the same scale, but are offset from one another by 273.15. i.e.: 0 K equals –273.15°C and 273.15 K equals 0°C. Conduction: Heat transfer through a solid material. A heat sink conducts heat from the die to its fins/pins. Conduction increases with increasing temperature differential, increasing conduction coefficient, increasing cross-sectional area, and decreasing material thickness.
Formerly referred to as the Centigrade scale, this is an internationally used temperature scale in which the freezing point of water is 0° and the boiling point is 100°. To convert degrees Celsius into degrees Fahrenheit, multiply by 1.8 and add 32.
a temperature scale in which 0° represents the freezing point of water and 100° the boiling point; to convert a Celsius reading to Fahrenheit degrees, multiply by 9, divide by 5, and add 32; also called "centigrade."
is a temperature scale, also called the Centigrade scale. Its fixed points are the freezing point of water (0.C) and the boiling point of water (100.C). To convert from Celsius to Fahrenheit, multiply the Celsius temperature by 1.8 and add 32.
Also known as Centigrade. A scale for measuring temperature in which the freezing point of water is 0Æ’ and the boiling point is 100Æ’. Now used for the oven settings on electric cookers, replacing the Fahrenheit scale which is gradually becoming obsolete in Europe.
Ander's Celsius was a Swedish 1701-44. Professor of Astronomy at Uppsala. While in Paris in 1736 he was instrumental in organizing an expedition to Lapland to measure the art of the meridian there. In 1742, he invent invented the centigrade, or Celsius thermometer with 100 degrees separate the freezing and boiling points of water.
A temperature scale based on the freezing (0 degrees) and boiling (100 degrees) points of water. Abbreviated as C in second and subsequent references in text. Formerly known as Centigrade. To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit, multiply the number by 9, divide by 5, and add 32. For example: 10 degrees Celsius x 9 = 90; 90 / 5 = 18 18 + 32 = 50 degrees Fahrenheit. CFCs (Chlorofluorocarbons or Chlorinated Fluorocarbons): A family of artificially produced chemicals receiving much attention for their role in stratospheric ozone depletion. On a per molecule basis, these chemicals are several thousand times more effective as greenhouse gases than carbon dioxide. Since they were introduced in the midâ€“1930s, CFCs have been used as refrigerants, solvents and in the production of foam material. The 1987 Montreal protocol on CFCs seeks to reduce their production by oneâ€“half by the year 1998.
Formerly known as Centigrade. A temperature scale in which water freezes at 0°C and boils at 100°C at standard atmospheric pressure. The formula for conversion to the Fahrenheit scale is: °F = (1.8 x °C) + 32.
(also Celsius scale, centigrade. Celsius is the term preferred over centigrade.) A temperature scale on which the freezing point of water is 0 degrees Celsius and the boiling point of water is 100 degrees Celsius (at one atmosphere of pressure). The formula for converting temperatures from the Celsius scale to the Fahrenheit scale is oC=5/9 (oF -32). See Fahrenheit.
A scale for measuring temperature where absolute cold is -273.2'C, the melting point of water (ice point) is 0 C, and the boiling point of water is 100° C. Centimeter A unit of length measurement in the metric system. one hundred centimeters is equal to one meter ( 2.54 cm. = 1")
A scale of temperature based on one introduced in 1742 by Celsius, a Swedish astronomer and physicist, who divided the interval between the freezing and boiling points of water into 100 parts, the lower fixed point being marked 100. The present system, where the freezing point is marked 0 and the boiling point is marked 100, was introduced by Christin of Lyons, in 1743. This latter scale is now referred to as the Celsius scale; alternative names are the centigrade scale, and less commonly the centesimal scale.
Celsius is the superhero alias of Arani Desai, a fictional character in the DC Comics series, Doom Patrol. She first appeared in Showcase #94 (September 1977), and was created by Paul Kupperberg and Jim Aparo.
Celsius is a small lunar crater that is located in the rugged terrain in the southern hemisphere on the Moon's near side. It lies less than one crater diameter to the south-southwest of Zagut crater, and due north of BÃ¼sching crater.
