## Celsius To Rankine Formula

Use this formula to convert a temperature in Celsius (°C) to Rankine (°R).

If required, there are worked examples below which use this formula to show how to convert a temperature in Celsius to a temperature in Rankine.

As with any math calculation and conversion, it's good practice to double check your results. If you are using this formula for your own conversions, you can check your result with the Celsius to Rankine calculator.

Temperature scales are usually named after the person who created them. The temperature scales used in this formula were created by Anders Celsius (1701–1744) and William John Macquorn Rankine (1820-1872).

Given the Rankine scale was invented many years after the Celsius scale, it's probable William Rankine also created the formula for converting Celsius to Rankine.

## How To Convert Celsius To Rankine

Using the **Celsius to Rankine formula: Rankine (°R) = (Celsius + 273.15) x 1.8**, these examples show how to convert a temperature in Celsius to Rankine.

#### Worked Example 1

### How To Convert 15 Celsius (°C) to Rankine (°R)

°R = | ( 15 + 273.15 ) x 1.8 |

= | 288.15 x 1.8 |

= | 518.67 °R |

∴ | therefore, 15 Celsius (°C) is equal to 518.67 Rankine (°R) |

check this result with the conversion calculator

#### Worked Example 2

### How To Convert 45 Celsius (°C) to Rankine (°R)

°R = | ( 45 + 273.15 ) x 1.8 |

= | 318.15 x 1.8 |

= | 572.67 °R |

∴ | therefore, 45 Celsius (°C) is equal to 572.67 Rankine (°R) |

William John Macquorn Rankine (1820-1872), is the proponent of the Rankine temperature scale.

## Formula Or Equation?

Is a formula, an equation, or both used to convert Celsius to Rankine?

I regard the formulae* , on the Calculate and Convert section of this website, as being formulae

andequations -each formula is in the form of an equation.* 'formulae', (

and formulas), are the plural of formula
