At a glance: A hot time

From page B2 | May 14, 2014 |

Escabar_MimiGabriel Fahrenheit was born on May 14, 1686. He came up with the mercury thermometer and a standardized scale in 1714. The Fahrenheit scale divided the freezing and boiling points of water into 180 degrees. The freezing point of water was 32 degrees F and the boiling point of water was 212 degrees F. The 0 degrees F was based on the temperature of an equal mixture of water, ice and salt. There are some hot temperatures coming up and there are some hot events to go to.
