Rankine To Kelvin Calculator – °R to K

This page features a Rankine to Kelvin:


Rankine To Kelvin Conversion Calculator

Enter A Temperature


Values Are Rounded To 5 Decimal Places

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

Enter a temperature for an instant °R to K 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 Kelvin back to Rankine.

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

Rankine To Kelvin Formula

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

Kelvin (°K) = Rankine / 1.8

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

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

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

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

Worked Example

Convert 560 Rankine (°R) to Kelvin (°K)

°K = 560 / 1.8
= 311.11 °K
( to 2 decimal places )
therefore, 560 Rankine is equal to 311.11 Kelvin (°K)

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