What is Rankine (°R)?

The Rankine scale is an absolute temperature scale that shares the same degree increment as the Fahrenheit scale. It is often used in engineering fields, particularly in thermodynamics and aerospace engineering, where temperature calculations involving absolute values are required.

On the Rankine scale, absolute zero is defined as 0 Rankine, which is equivalent to -459.67 degrees Fahrenheit (-273.15 degrees Celsius). Absolute zero represents the absence of thermal energy, where particles cease all motion. Unlike the Celsius and Kelvin scales, the Rankine scale does not have a unique starting point at absolute zero, as it is based on the Fahrenheit scale.

The Symbols of Rankine are R, °R or °Ra.

The Rankine scale is not commonly used in everyday life or scientific research outside of some engineering fields, such as thermodynamics or aerospace engineering. Most countries and scientific disciplines primarily use the Celsius (or Centigrade) scale or the Kelvin scale for temperature measurements.
