The Fahrenheit temperature scale is named for German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit and is the measurement of temperature commonly used by the United States (and its associated territories) and by several nations in the Caribbean. On the Fahrenheit scale, water freezes at 32°F and boils at 212°F (at sea level).

The Celsius temperature scale—originally called centigrade and later renamed for Swedish astronomer Anders Celsiusis used almost everywhere else in the world. On the Celsius scale, water freezes at 0°C and boils at 100°C (at sea level).
