Want to change from units of kelvin to rankine? Not a problem with our kelvin to rankine online converter! Click here to use it and more temp converters.

The temperature measurement units of **kelvin** and **rankine** and very similar as both were discovered by Glaswegian engineers and physicists. The Rankine scale and Kelvin scale both use 0 on their scales to signify the absolute zero of all thermal motion. The difference between the two is that rankine units are based upon degrees Fahrenheit while kelvin is based upon degrees Celsius. Above you will find our **kelvin – rankine converter** and view our other temperature converters.

## How to use the Converter Kelvin to Rankine?

Simple to use, enter the amount of units of kelvin you want to change into the box above for our **K – R conversion tool** to get going. Click “convert” and view the new quantity in rankine. If you need the opposite conversion, go to convert rankine to kelvin.

## Formula to Convert K – °R

The **mathematical formula** for this conversion is shown in the equation below and is the same formula used by the **converter of kelvin to rankine**. As a few examples, 4 K = 7.2 °R and 13 K = 23.4 °R

**[number of] kelvin x (9/5) = [number of] rankine**

## When to use Kelvin?

The unit of **kelvin** is not a type of degree but instead is a unit of measurement mostly used within the scientific field, showing a difference between it and the likes of Celsius and Fahrenheit. The Kelvin scale was created when Glaswegian engineer and physicist, William Thomson, wrote about an absolute thermometric scale. Above you will be able to **convert k to °r**.

## When to use Rankine?

Absolute zero on the **Rankine scale** is also defined as 0 on the Kelvin scale, however units of rankine are related to degrees of Fahrenheit unlike kelvin that are related to Celsius. William Rankine, a Glaswegian engineer and physicist, proposed the Rankine scale in 1859. Use our **kelvin – rankine calculator** above.
