Rømer

The Rømer scale owes its name to it's inventor Ole Christensen Rømer. A Rømer degree is equivalent to 40/21 of a Celsius degree. It places the water freezing point at 7.5 °Rø.

Kelvin

Kelvin is the unit of measure for temperature adopted by the International System of Units. Absolute zero is 0 K, equivalent to -273.15 °C. Kelvin uses the same interval as Celsius. The Kelvin scale is named after Baron Kelvin of Largs, who described the need for an absolute thermometric scale in his paper "On an Absolute Thermometric Scale".
