# 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:

Editor's Pick2m 25d agoNice, but how do you pronounce it when using it for a parameter such as Standard State Gibbs "free energy", written G°? I know it's not popular, but occasionally we have to actually talk to live humans, not just interface with a keyboard. There's also a lack of a "delta" sign on keyboards, as used for "change in", but life's a b...h, then you die. No, it's not THAT bad!
