Degree Symbol °

# Degree Symbol

Sometimes students or those who deal with mathematics, physics or various kinds of calculations may need to type a degree sign, but we do not have one directly on our keyboard. Degree symbol can be used in case if we're dealing with angles, or when we need to operate with temperature and use Celsius degree. It is also a common coordinate degree sign. Actually, there are a few ways to make a degree symbol. You can either copy paste, or use the degree code in your document. See some examples below:

° &#176;

html degree decimal

° &#xb0;

html degree hex

° &deg;

On the Mac, option-0 does NOT make a degree sign!!

Option-0 is the masculine ordinal operator.

The correct key combo for the degree sign is SHIFT-OPTION-8.
