Newton

The Newton scale was devised by Isaac Newton. He defined the "zeroth degree of heat" as melting snow and "33 degrees of heat" as boiling water. His scale is thus a precursor of the Celsius scale, being defined by the same temperature references. Thus the unit of this scale, the Newton degree, equals 10033 Kelvin conversion or degrees Celsius and has the same zero as the Celsius scale.
