Rankine

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Rankine is a unit of temperature used in the US engineering field. 0 is set at absolute zero.

formula

\(T_{°R} = \left(273.15° \;+\; T_ { °C} \right )\; 1.8 \;\)

\(T_{°R} = 459.67° \;+\; T_ { °F} \;\)

\(T_{°R} = \left( T_{°K} \right) \;1.8 \;\)

Where:

\(T\) = temperature

\(C\) = celsius

\(F\) = fahrenheit

\(K\) = kelvin

\(R\) = rankine
