# 1 Kelvin (K) to Rankine (°R)

# Temperature Converter

Temperature is a measure of the hotness or coldness of an object or the environment. It represents the average kinetic energy of the particles within a substance or system. Temperature is an important physical quantity used in various fields, including science, engineering, and everyday life.

Below is a table showcasing various units of temperature and their common conversions:

Unit Name | Unit Symbol | Conversion to Kelvin |
---|---|---|

Kelvin | K | 1 Kelvin |

Celsius | °C | Celsius = Kelvin - 273.15 |

Fahrenheit | °F | °F = (K − 273.15) × 9/5 + 32 |

Rankine | °R | Rankine = Kelvin × 9/5 |

##### Kelvin

Kelvin as in absolute scale where 0 K is absolute zero. It's developed from the Celcius scale where 273.15 K = 0 °C

##### Rankine

Similar to Kelvin, Rankine is an absolute scale where 0°R is absolute zero. °R can be converted to Kelvin by multiplying 5/9
