putu

degree (angle and temperature) (º)

tūingoa

WHAKAMĀRAMA

E rua ngā whakamahinga o te putu hei waeine. Tuatahi, he waeine hei whakaatu i te rahi o tētahi koki, o tētahi huringa rānei. E 360º i te huringa kotahi. Tuarua, he waeine mō te paemahana. Kia eke te wera o te wai ki te 100º, kua koropupū. Kia heke ki te 0º, kua haupapa.

Degrees are used as a unit of measurement for two things. Firstly, as a unit for measuring angles or rotation. There are 360º in a complete turn. Secondly, as a unit for measuring temperature. 100º is boiling point, 0º is when water turns to ice.
