## How to Convert Rankine to Fahrenheit

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

°F=°R - 459.67

### Convert 5°R to fahrenheit

5 °R = 5 - 459.67 = -454.67 °F

### Convert 10°R to fahrenheit

10 °R = 10 - 459.67 = -449.67 °F

### Convert 100°R to fahrenheit

100 °R = 100 - 459.67 = -359.67 °F

## 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.

## Fahrenheit

### What is a Fahrenheit?

The Fahrenheit (symbol: °F) is a unit of temperature that was widely used prior to metrication. It is currently defined by two fixed points: the temperature at which water freezes, 32°F, and the boiling point of water, 212°F, both at sea level and standard atmospheric pressure. The interval between the freezing and boiling point is divided into 180 equal parts.

### What is the Fahrenheit used for?

Until the 1960's the Fahrenheit scale was the primary scale used in English-speaking countries. Today, most countries around the world use the Celsius temperature scale instead, many having made the change during their metrication processes (conversion to using the metric system of units). However, the Fahrenheit scale is still used as the official temperature scale in a number of countries, including the United States.
