°C:

Celsius is the temperature scale previously known as the centigrade scale.
The name Centigrade was derived from the Latin - meaning "hundred degrees".
When Anders Celsius - a Swedish astronomer - created his original scale in 1742 he inexplicably chose 0° for the boiling point and 100° for the freezing point.
One year later Frenchman Jean Pierre Cristin proposed an inverted version of the scale - freezing point 0°, boiling point 100°.
In 1948, by international agreement, Cristin's adapted scale became known as Celsius to honour the Swedish Scientist.
The degree Celsius - symbol: °C - can refer to a specific temperature on the Celsius scale as well as serve as unit increment to indicate a temperature interval.

°F:

Fahrenheit is a temperature scale named after the German-Dutch physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686–1736), who proposed it in 1724.
In this scale, the freezing point of water is 32 degrees Fahrenheit (written “32 °F”), and the boiling point is 212 degrees, placing the boiling and freezing points of water exactly 180 degrees apart.
Until 1954, 0 °C on the Celsius scale was defined as the melting point of ice and 100 °C was defined as the boiling point of water under a pressure of one standard atmosphere; this close equivalence is taught in schools today.
However, the unit “degree Celsius” and the Celsius scale are currently, by international agreement, defined by two different points: absolute zero, and the triple point of specially prepared water.
This definition also precisely relates the Celsius scale to the Kelvin scale, which is the SI base unit of temperature (symbol: K).
Absolute zero is the temperature at which no heat energy remains in a substance, and is defined as being precisely 0 K and −273.15 °C.
Nothing could be colder than that.
The triple point of water is defined as being precisely 273.16 K and 0.01 °C.

Fahrenheit is using in United States, Palau, Federated States Of Micronesia, Marshall Islands, Bahamas, Belize and Cayman Islands
