Want to change a number of Rankine units into degrees Fahrenheit? Check out this calculator! Use our Rankine to Fahrenheit converter for calculations.

**Rankine and Fahrenheit** are both used to measure temperature, however rankine is used more industrially and is similar to the kelvin. Zero on the Rankine and Kelvin scale both signify absolute zero for all thermal activity. Fahrenheit is a more commercial unit that people use everyday. Degrees Fahrenheit is favoured in the United States over Celsius. Try out out **rankine – Fahrenheit calculator** above, or view our other temperature converters.

## How to use the Converter from Rankine to Fahrenheit?

Enter the quantity of rankine units you need to change in the box above and click “convert” for our **°R – °F converter** to present the equivalent quantity in degrees Fahrenheit. The opposite conversion would require you to convert Fahrenheit to rankine.

## Formula to Convert °R – °F

In mathematical terms, the formula for a **rankine to Fahrenheit conversion** is shown below should you at any point need to do the calculation by hand or know how it is done. For instance, 33°R = -426.67°F and 325°R = -134.67°F

**[number of] rankine units – 459.67 = [number of] degrees Fahrenheit**

## 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 the units of kelvin that are related to Celsius. William Rankine, a Glaswegian engineer and physicist, proposed the **Rankine scale** in 1859. Use our **rankine – Fahrenheit converter** above.

## When to use Fahrenheit?

**Fahrenheit** is favoured in the United States for measuring temperature, such as on the weather forecast and within buildings, such as offices and rooms. The Fahrenheit scale as we know it today is based on one proposed by German physicist, Daniel Fahrenheit who studied the temperatures of brine and the human body.
