Rankine Scale

  • Definition: Rankine is a thermodynamic (absolute) temperature scale named after the Glasgow University engineer and physicist William John Macquorn Rankine. The symbol for degrees Rankine is degree R or degree Ra if necessary to distinguish it from the Romer and Reaumur scales). Zero on both the Kelvin and Rankine scales is absolute zero, but the Rankine degree is defined as equal to one degree Fahrenheit, rather than the one degree Celsius used by the Kelvin scale.
