Celsius

Cel·si·us

 (sĕl′sē-əs, -shəs)
adj. Abbr. C
Of or relating to a temperature scale that registers the freezing point of water as 0° and the boiling point as 100° under normal atmospheric pressure. See Table at measurement.

[After Anders Celsius.]

Celsius

(ˈsɛlsɪəs)
adj
(Units) denoting a measurement on the Celsius scale. Symbol: C
[C18: named after Anders Celsius (1701–44), Swedish astronomer who invented it]

Cel•si•us

(ˈsɛl si əs)

adj.
pertaining to or noting a temperature scale (Cel′sius scale`) in which 0° represents the ice point and 100° the steam point; Centigrade. Symbol: C
[1845–55; after Anders Celsius (1701–44), Swedish astronomer who devised the scale]

Cel·si·us

(sĕl′sē-əs)
Relating to a temperature scale on which the freezing point of water is 0° and the boiling point of water is 100° under normal atmospheric pressure. See Note at centigrade.
Did You Know? In the United States, a forecast of 37° might get you to wear a coat. In Canada, however, 37° would call for shorts and sandals. Do Canadians simply enjoy the cold more? Well, possibly, but the true difference is that the two countries use different temperature scales. The United States favors the Fahrenheit scale, in which 37° is wintry. Canadians, and most of the world, use the Celsius scale, in which 37° is equivalent to 98.6° Fahrenheit—body temperature! Scientists usually use Celsius, in which 0 is water's freezing point (32°F) and 100 is its boiling point (212°F). (To convert between scales, see the table of measurements at the entry for measurement.) Scientists also use the Kelvin scale, where 0 is as cold as anything could ever get, which is about -273° Celsius. (One Kelvin degree, or one kelvin, equals one Celsius degree.) If it's going to be 37 kelvins, you'd better wear all the clothes you have, because your molecules will barely be moving at all.

Celsius

The centigrade temperature scale in which water freezes at 0°C and boils at 100°C.
