## About Newton (temperature scale)

The Newton temperature scale, also known as the Newtonian scale, is a temperature scale that was proposed by Sir Isaac Newton in the 18th century. Unlike the Celsius or Fahrenheit scales, which are based on the properties of specific substances, the Newton scale is based on the rate of change of a physical property with temperature.

In the Newton scale, the zero point is defined as the temperature at which water freezes, similar to the Celsius scale. However, the scale is divided into 33 equal intervals, or degrees, between the freezing and boiling points of water. This means that each degree on the Newton scale is larger than a degree on the Celsius or Fahrenheit scales.

While the Newton scale was proposed by one of the most influential scientists in history, it did not gain widespread adoption and is not commonly used today. The Celsius and Fahrenheit scales, which are based on the properties of water and widely used in scientific and everyday applications, have become the standard temperature scales. However, the Newton scale remains an interesting historical curiosity and a testament to the ingenuity of Sir Isaac Newton.

## About Celsius

Celsius and Kelvin are two commonly used temperature scales in the field of science and everyday life. The Celsius scale, also known as the centigrade scale, is named after the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius. It is based on the concept of dividing the range between the freezing and boiling points of water into 100 equal intervals. The freezing point of water is defined as 0 degrees Celsius, while the boiling point is defined as 100 degrees Celsius at standard atmospheric pressure.

The Celsius scale is commonly used in weather forecasts, household thermometers, and cooking, while the Kelvin scale is primarily used in scientific experiments, thermodynamics, and calculations involving gases.
