Degree Symbol °

Degree Symbol

Degree symbol is °. 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:

The ℃ symbol (where "℃" is a single Unicode character) is a compatibility character designed for use with Chinese or Japanese (e.g. so it can occupy a single block, for example, in vertical text). But the Unicode standard explicitly discourages the use of this character (and ℉ too). Just so you know.

Marcus 2018-07-18 14:13:10

Has everything I would ever want to know about the degree symbol. I wish there were more sites like this one. I rate 9/10 because the Mac option code is still inaccurate.

It's 74 degrees outside.

Said Achmiz 2017-06-03 20:08:06

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.
