## Calculation

## Rankine

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.

## Kelvin

The Kelvin scale is an absolute temperature scale named after the Scottish physicist William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin. It is commonly used in scientific and engineering applications where an absolute temperature reference is required. The Kelvin scale starts at absolute zero, the point at which all molecular motion ceases. The freezing point of water on the Kelvin scale is 273.15 K, and the boiling point is 373.15 K.
