Fahrenheit

Cold, colder, hot.

If it had not been for Gabriel Fahrenheit, who was born in Gdańsk, we would not know if the fever we feel results from the disease which spreads in our body, or if there is just an unbearable heat outside. Fahrenheit improved the mercury thermometer invented by Galileo, taking advantage of the fact that this substance expands under the influence of the increasing temperature. In addition, he investigated the effect of atmospheric pressure on mercury . Fahrenheit was the son of a merchant - Daniel Fahrenheit and Concordia, who came from a famous family of Gdańsk entrepreneurs.

 

It turned out, however, that the thermometer alone is not enough for precise measurement . Nobody developed a scale that would make it possible to read the results and unify the temperature around the world. Here, Fahrenheit was the first as well - to mark the "0" point, he used the lowest temperature recorded in the winter of 1709 in Gdańsk, while 100 degrees was the temperature of his body. The lower limit of the scale he invented meant that it was very cold, while the highest point meant heat. It was not until several years later that Anders Celsius developed a scale based on the change in the state of water. Zero degrees marks the moment when ice turns into liquid, while 100 degrees means boiling water.
