Celcius is metric. Metric is the easy one to understand:
freezing point of water: 0°.
boiling point of water: 100°.
centimeters in a meter: 100
meters in a kilometer: 1000
milligrams in a gram: 1000
grams in a kilogram: 1000
milliliters in a liter: 1000

Etc….

Metric system also represent the zero options everyone should have when choosing the most comprehensible method for measuring things.

The number of degrees Celsius at the freezing point of water = the number of seconds you spent on Google before asking this question.

It depends on on the substance you are trying to freeze.

fresh water 0°C
sea water -2°C
mercury -39°C
propyl alcohol -127°C

Do a Google search – there are a lot of different liquids on various websites.

Blech… don’t like slammin’ the newbies… sorry.

Celsius was intentionally gradated to have a nice round 100 degrees to describe the 3 phases of water:

`<=0` freezing/solid
`>0 – <100` liquid
`>=100` boiling/gas
