Temperature Converter

Do you ever get confused with the Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales? Temperature scales are a bit ambiguous. Here's a little history...
In 1742 Anders Celsius created a temperature scale based on the freezing and boiling point of water. Today, 100 °C is the boiling temperature of water and 0 °C is water's freezing temperature. Earlier, in 1724, Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit invented the mercury-in-glass thermometer. 100 °F was the hottest day in Germany, and 0 °F was the coldest day in German. Today, only the United States uses the Fahrenheit scale and everyone else in the world uses the Celsius scale.
