Full Name: Rankine
Scale Factor: 2
Rankine is another scale that uses absolute zero as lowest. On this scale, each degree of temperature is equivalent to a degree on the Fahrenheit scale. In the Rankine scale, the freezing point of water is equal to 492 ° R, and its boiling point to 672 ° R
The degree Rankine has its point of absolute zero -459.67 ° F, and the degree intervals are identical to degree Fahrenheit range.
Commonly used in U.S. as thermodynamic temperature measurement. Although the scientific community measures are carried out in the International System of Units, so the temperature is measured in kelvin (K).
