Convert from kelvin to rankine formula

Total rankine = Total kelvin x 1.8

For example, if you want to convert 40 Kelvin to Rankine then,

40 k = 40 x 1.8 = 72 °r

Convert from rankine to kelvin formula

Total kelvin =
Total rankine
72 °r
= 40 k

Kelvin Scale

Kelvin is the unit of measure for temperature adopted by the International System of Units. Absolute zero is 0 K, equivalent to -273.15 °C. Kelvin uses the same interval as Celsius. The Kelvin scale is named after Baron Kelvin of Largs, who described the need for an absolute thermometric scale in his paper "On an Absolute Thermometric Scale".

Rankine Scale

The Rankine scale is named after Scottish physicist William John Macquorn Rankine. Similarly to kelvin absolute zero is 0 °R, equivalent to -459.67 °F. Rankine uses the same interval as Fahrenheit.
