Kelvin to Rankine conversion
Our Kelvin to Rankine conversion tool is a free converter that enables you to convert from Kelvin to Rankine easily.
How to Convert Kelvin to Rankine
To convert a kelvin(k) temperature to a rankine(°R) temperature, multiply the weight by the conversion ratio. Since one kelvin is equal to 1.8 rankine, you can use this simple formula to convert:
What is the formula to convert from Kelvin to Rankine?
°R=k * 1.8
Convert 5k to rankine
5 k = (5 * 1.8) = 9 °R
Convert 10k to rankine
10 k = (10 * 1.8) = 18 °R
Convert 100k to rankine
100 k = (100 * 1.8) = 1180 °R
What is a Kelvin?
The kelvin (symbol: K) is the base unit of thermodynamic temperature in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as the energy equivalent of the triple point of water as given by Boltzmann's equation. It is also the unit of the Kelvin scale in which the null point (0 K) is the temperature at which all thermal motion ceases, known as absolute zero.
What is the Kelvin used for?
The kelvin is used worldwide, particularly in science and engineering, together with the Celsius. This is partially due to the kelvin and the Celsius degree having exactly the same magnitude. Unlike the Celsius and Fahrenheit, the kelvin is not used in meteorological contexts.
What is a Rankine?
The Rankine (symbol: °F) pertains to an absolute temperature scale (Rankine scale) in which the degree intervals are equal to those of the Fahrenheit scale and in which 0° Rankine equals −459.7° Fahrenheit
What is the Rankine used for?
Rankine is commonly used in the aerospace industry in the United States. Rankine is to Fahrenheit what Kelvin is for Celsius. So when people in the United States were creating programs and using equations that needed an absolute temperature, they used Rankine before Celsius became dominate for scientific calculations.
