Fahrenheit Scale Definition

A thermometric scale named after the German physicist Gabriel Fahrenheit, on which under standard atmospheric pressure the boiling point of water is at 212 degrees above the zero of the scale, the freezing point is at 32 degrees above zero, and the zero point approximates the temperature produced by mixing equal quantities by weight of snow and common salt. The scale is used by the general population of USA and Jamaica for non-scientific temperature measurement.
