## How to Convert Rankine to Celsius

To convert a Rankine temparature to a celsius temparature, use the following fomular:

### What is the formula to convert from Rankine to Celsius?

°C=(°R - 491.67)* 5/9

### Convert 5°R to celsius

5 °R = (5 - 491.67)* 5/9 = -270.372 °C

### Convert 10°R to celsius

10 °R = (10 - 491.67)* 5/9 = -267.594 °C

### Convert 100°R to celsius

100 °R = (100 - 491.67)* 5/9 = -217.594 °C

## Rankine

### 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.

## Celsius

### What is a Celsius?

The Celsius (symbol: °C) is an SI (International System of Units) derived unit of temperature. It is defined based on the SI unit of temperature, the kelvin. The Celsius and Kelvin scales are precisely related, with a one-degree change in Celsius being equal to a one degree-change in kelvin.

### What is the Celsius used for?

The Celsius scale replaced the Fahrenheit scale in most countries in the mid to late 20th century. Almost all countries around the world use this scale, except for those in which the metric system has not been adopted, such as the United States.
