Difference between the units

Celsius is used by pretty much every country on the planet except for the
United States, its territories and a few other small nations. The
scientific community also uses Celsius for many practices.

The numbers Celsius is based around – 0 degrees for freezing and 100
degrees for boiling – are more straight forward and make more sense.
Fahrenheit, however, has the benefit of being more precise. For example,
while 32 degrees Fahrenheit = 0 degrees Celsius, 35 degrees Fahrenheit =
1.6 degrees Celsius, which would likely be rounded up to 2°C to avoid
having to use decimals.
