How to Convert Kelvins to Rankine

Thermometers measure temperature and come in many forms and sizes

Convert kelvins to degrees rankine with this simple formula:

degrees rankine = [K] × 9 / 5

Insert the [K] temperature measurement in the formula and then solve to find the result.

For example, let's convert 50 K to degrees rankine:

50 K = ( 50 × 9 / 5 ) = 90 °R

Kelvins and rankine are both units used to measure temperature. Learn more about temperature and find more temperature measurement conversion calculators. Kelvin can be abbreviated as K, for example 1 kelvin can be written as 1 K. Rankine can be abbreviated as R, for example 1 degree rankine can be written as 1 °R.

The Kelvin scale is a temperature scale where 0 is the point where all thermal motion ceases and was created by Lord Kelvin. The temperature scale does not use measurements in degrees, but instead of simply K. It's often used in the physical sciences due to its absolute nature. 0 K is equal to −273.15 °C.
