Only a few countries use Fahrenheit as their official scale: the United States, Belize, Palau, the Bahamas and the Cayman Islands. Fahrenheit is still sometimes used in Canada, although Celsius is more common and is the official Canadian temperature scale.
Similarly, what is the metric unit of temperature?
The basic unit of mass in the metric system is the gram (g). The most common derived unit is the milligram (mg) (10-3 or 1/1000 of a gram). For measuring large masses, the kilogram (103 or 1000 grams) is often used. The basic unit of temperature in the metric system is the degree Celsius.
Is Celsius measured in degrees?
Common scales of temperature measured in degrees: Celsius (°C) Rankine (°R or °Ra), which uses the Fahrenheit scale, adjusted so that 0 degrees Rankine is equal to absolute zero.
