He originally designated zero as the boiling point of water and 100º as freezing point. The scale was later reversed. Centigrade A temperature scale using the freezing point of water as zero and the boiling point of water as 100º. The scale is now officially called celsius (see above) to avoid confusion in Europe where the word can mean a measure of plane angle and equals 1/10 000 part of a right angle. Fahrenheit (ºF) A scale of temperature still used in the USA which gives the freezing point of water as 32º and boiling point as 212º.

A0 is twice A1 which is twice A2 and so on. Where larger sizes than A0 are needed the A is preceded by a figure, thus 4A is four times A0. The B series are sizes intermediate between any two A sizes. This series is used mostly for posters and charts. The C series are envelopes to suit the A sizes. DL or long sizes are obtained by dividing the A and B series into three, four or eight equal parts parallel to the shorter side so that the proportion of 1 : ͱ2 is not maintained. In practice, the long sizes should be produced from the A series only.
