In Canada and Mexico the standard for measuring temperature is the Celsius Scale - C°.

In the United States the standard for measuring temperature is the Fahrenheit Scale, expressed as degrees Fahrenheit (F°). In this scale water freezes at 32°F and boils at 212°F. (Mr. Fahrenheit had established 0ºF as the stabilized temperature when equal amounts of ice, water, and salt are mixed. He then defined 96ºF as the temperature 'when the thermometer is held in the mouth or under the armpit of a living man in good health'. )

Most all of the world uses the International System of Units (SI) for measuring everything, including temperature. Temperature is expressed as degrees Celsius (C°). The standard for measuring temperature is the Celsius Scale, where 0°C is the exact point where common water freezes and 100°C is the exact point at which it boils.

Obviously it's nice to have a handy (online) calculator:
Metric Conversion charts and calculators [http://www.metric-conversions.org/] - Provides free online conversion tools, which can be added to any websites. It also offers metric conversion tables for download and print, or

The Digital Dutch unit converter converts angle, area, bits & bytes, density, electric current, energy, force, fuel consumption, length, mass, power, pressure, speed, temperature, time and volume units.
