The Rankine scale is an absolute temperature scale named after the Scottish engineer and physicist William John Macquorn Rankine. Similar to the Kelvin scale, the Rankine scale starts at absolute zero, with each degree Rankine equal to one degree Fahrenheit. This scale is primarily used in thermodynamics and engineering, particularly in the United States. The freezing point of water on the Rankine scale is 491.67 °R, and the boiling point is 671.67 °R.


Fahrenheit is a temperature scale proposed by the German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit. On the Fahrenheit scale, the freezing point of water is 32 degrees, and the boiling point is 212 degrees under standard atmospheric pressure. The Fahrenheit scale is commonly used in the United States and some other countries, especially for weather reporting and everyday temperature measurements.
