Kelvin To Rankine Calculator – K to °R

This page features a Kelvin to Rankine:


Kelvin To Rankine Conversion Calculator

Enter A Temperature


Values Are Rounded To 5 Decimal Places

Use this calculator to quickly convert a temperature from Kelvin (K) to degrees Rankine (°R).

Enter a temperature for an instant K to °R conversion - there is no need to press submit!

This calculator accepts values using both scales and so, if required, can be used to convert temperatures in Rankine back to Kelvin.

If interested, this site has a Rankine to Kelvin section, which also features a temperature conversion calculator, formula and tables.

Kelvin To Rankine Formula

The calculator above uses the following formula to convert Kelvin to Rankine:

Rankine (°R) = Kelvin x 1.8

The worked example below shows how to convert to Rankine from Kelvin using this formula.

If are using this formula to manually convert a temperature, check your result with the calculator.

How To Convert Kelvin To Rankine (K to °R)

This worked example shows how to convert a temperature in Kelvin to Rankine using the formula: Rankine (°R) = Kelvin x 1.8

Worked Example

Convert 300 Kelvin (K) to Rankine (°R)

°R = 300 x 1.8
= 540 °R
therefore, 300 Kelvin is equal to 540 Rankine (°R)
( to 2 decimal places )

Albert Einstein is shown for illustrative purposes.
William John Macquorn Rankine (1820-1872), is the proponent of the Rankine temperature scale.
