Etymology

degree and Celsius

Noun

Singular
degree Celsius

Plural
{{{1}}}

degree Celsius ({{{1}}})
  1. A metric unit of temperature, a derived unit of the International System of Units. Symbol: °C

Usage notes

  • In technical contexts, the symbol should always include both the degree symbol ° and the C identifying the scale, as the symbol C alone is used for coulombs. In informal usage, where the meaning is clear, the degree symbol is sometimes omitted (in part because the degree symbol is generally not one of the keys on a keyboard).
