The Fahrenheit scale is a temperature scale commonly used in the United States and a few other countries for everyday temperature measurements. It is named after the Polish-German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit. The Fahrenheit scale divides the range between the freezing and boiling points of water into 180 equal parts.
On the Fahrenheit scale, the freezing point of water is defined as 32 degrees Fahrenheit (°F) and the boiling point of water is defined as 212 °F, both at standard atmospheric pressure. These reference points create a scale where the degree size is smaller compared to the Celsius and Kelvin scales.
It's important to note that the Fahrenheit scale is primarily used in the United States for weather reporting, household temperature measurements, and some specialized industries. In most other parts of the world and scientific research, the Celsius (or Centigrade) scale and the Kelvin scale are more commonly used for temperature measurements and calculations.
