How is temperature measured in the metric system?

Temperature is measured in the metric system using degrees Celsius (centigrade). The official scale is actually the Kelvin scale, which uses the same degree size, but begins at absolute zero. Kelvin is often used for special scientific usage with very high or low temperatures. It is also preferred for certain computations using the gas law, because the product of pressure and volume is directly proportional to Kelvin temperature. Answer In the SI system, the base unit of measurement for temperature is the kelvin. Celsius is a metric unit, but it is NOT an SI unit.

Is degree celsius a si unit of measure?

I believe the Kelvin which is the absolute temperature scale, is the SI temperature scale, but Celsius is the commonly used metric system measure of temperature. For 0° C, the Kelvin temperature is approx 273 K. For each degree change in Kelvin is equal to a degree Celsius change.

Why is water a special substance in the metric system?

GramWater is originally used in the metric system to define what a kilogram is. When the metric system was originally developed, the standard unit for mass was the mass of a liter of water as ice, which is one kilogram.The Celsius temperature scale (and also the Kelvin scale) is also based on water. The boiling point of water (at sea level) is 100 degres Celsius, and freezing is 0 degrees Celsius.

How are the two temperature scales used?

The Celsius (centigrade) scale is in use worldwide for common temperatures, both in commerce and weather. The Fahrenheit scale is used in the United States as a traditional weather, cooking, and industrial scale. Following the Metric Conversion Act of 1975, the US National Institute of Standards and Technology officially adopted the Metric System (SI), including the Celsius scale. However, use of the "English" system continues and many thermometers have dual scales.
