## Rankine to Kelvin conversion

 Rankine: °R Kelvin: K

### Rankine to Kelvin Conversion

The Rankine to Kelvin conversion calculator is used to convert the temperature in degrees Rankine (°R) to the temperature in Kelvin (K). It is programmed to give quick and accurate results based on the input values. When using this converter, the first step is to enter the value in Rankine in the blank text field.

The ‘Convert’ button is used to initiate the conversion from Rankine to Kelvin. It will display the conversion result below the control buttons in Kelvin. If you want to perform new conversions, use the ‘Reset’ button to clear all text fields with a single click.It enhances the flexibility of the Rankine to Kelvin converter as it can only perform one conversion at a time.

##### Example

Convert 500 Rankine to Kelvin

##### Solution

First, enter the value in Rankine (500) in the blank text field. Press the ‘Convert’ button to get the results in Kelvin. It is shown as;

Kelvin: 277. 77777778 K

This means that 500 degrees Rankine is equal to 277.77777778 Kelvin.

Use the same procedure when converting new values in degrees Rankine to get the corresponding results in Kelvin.

#### Formula of converting Rankine to Kelvin

T (K) = T (°R) x 5/9

Therefore, the temperature in Kelvin is calculated by multiplying the temperature in degrees Rankine by 5/9.

For example; convert 600 degrees Rankine to Kelvin

Solution; Multiply this value (600) by 5/9

= 600 x 5/9

= 333.33333 K

This means that 600 degrees Rankine is equal to 333.33333 Kelvin

The Rankine to Kelvin conversion table is used in the conversion of common values from degrees Rankine to Kelvin on a scale of 0°R to 1000°R

##### Definitions

Rankine is a temperature scale abbreviated as “°R”. It is used where heat computations are done using the Fahrenheit scale in the engineering systems.

Kelvin is a temperature scale that is abbreviated as “K”. One degree Rankine is equal to 0.56 Kelvin.
