# Kelvin to Rankine | K to °R

## Calculator Use

Convert Kelvin to degrees in Rankine.

## K to °R formula

This is how you convert from Kelvin to Rankine.

°R equals K multiplied by, 9 divided 5.

Another way to write this formula, which can be easier to remember for some people is as follows. This formula is stated: °R equals K multiplied 1.8.

For example, to convert 100 Kelvin to degrees Rankine, we plug our numbers into the formula as shown below:

°R = 100 × (9/5)

°R = 100 × 1.8

°R = 180

100 Kelvin is equal to 180 degrees Rankine.

This calculator will show the steps to solve the K to °R formula so you know how make the conversion yourself.

## Rankine

Rankine is a temperature scale and degrees Rankine are units of temperature on that scale. The symbol for degree Rankine is °R. A temperature such as 500 °R is stated "five-hundred degrees Rankine". On the Rankine scale the boiling point of water is 671.67 °R, the freezing point of water is 491.67 °R and absolute zero is 0 °R. The Rankine scale does not contain negative values.

## Kelvin

Kelvin is a temperature scale and Kelvin are units of temperature on that scale. The symbol for Kelvin is K without a degree (°) symbol. On the Kelvin scale the boiling point of water is 373.15 K, the freezing point of water is 273.15 K and absolute zero is 0 K. The Kelvin scale does not contain negative values.
