Scale Unit / Degree
Hallo,

I am a little bit confused right now. This morning I listened to an English radio sender, and as they talked about the weather here in Germany they said that we had 42 degrees :shock: . I don't know, maybe they measured in the desert instead of Germany, but on my thermometer there were only 6 degrees.

Do you have other scale units?
I am also confused about your other measure units like your weight or your size :-? But in the meantime I know that when someone said that they have a weigt of 200 that this are not kilogram :lol:

The term degree is used in several scales of temperature. The symbol ° is usually used, followed by the initial letter of the unit, for example °C for degree(s) Celsius. (For temperature differences, the usage is sometimes reversed; then 100 C°, or "100 Celsius degrees", is a temperature difference, while 100 °C, or "100 degrees Celsius", is an actual temperature.) Scales of temperature include:

degree Celsius (°C)
degree Delisle (°De)
degree Fahrenheit (°F)
degree Newton (°N)
degree Rankine (°R or °Ra)
degree Réaumur (°R)
degree Rømer (°Rø)
degree Kelvin (°K)
This degree Kelvin (°K) is a former name for the SI unit of temperature on the thermodynamic (absolute) temperature scale. Since 1967 it has been known simply as the kelvin, with symbol K.
degree absolute (°A) is obsolete terminology, often referring specifically to the kelvin but sometimes the degree Rankine as well
