# How Many Temperature Scales Are There in the World Today that are used?

In our modern world scales are very important. Almost in all our lives we have to measure the things in order to regulate them and in order to make our lives much more right. When we are buying something and on the other hand when we are selling something we have to measure the things and in accordance with their proportion we are selling those goods. In the world today as people we are using lots of different measurement tools. For example when we are measuring the length we are using the meter and as we said before for all of the different things we have different measurement tools.

Today we are going to make a short analysis about the measurement of the temperature and the tools that are used when people are making measurement of the temperature. On this point we can see that in our daily lives the temperature is very important and it can be easily said that in almost all of our lives that are available and necessary. For instance; we are measuring the temperature of the weather and every day we are looking these temperatures and in accordance with the situation of the temperature of the weather people are making decisions about their lives their works and their holidays.
