About Rankine and Rankine scale
The degree Rankine is a unit of measurement for temperature.
The Rankine scale is a thermodynamic (absolute) temperature scale named after the famous engineer and physicist William John Macquorn Rankine (1820-1872). The temperature intervals on Rankine scale have the same magnitude as the temperature intervals on the Fahrenheit scale, but absolute zero on Rankine scale is 0 °R.
Plural: degrees Rankine
Common Rankine conversions:
- 0 degrees Rankine (°R) = -273.15 degrees Celsius (°C) = -459.67 degrees Fahrenheit (°F)
- 491.67 degrees Rankine (°R) = 0 degrees Celsius (°C) = 32 degrees Fahrenheit (°F)
- 671.67 degrees Rankine (°R) = 100 degrees Celsius (°C) = 212 degrees Fahrenheit (°F)
