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.


The Newton scale is a temperature scale devised by Sir Isaac Newton. On this scale, the freezing point of water is defined as 0 degrees, and the boiling point is 33 degrees under standard atmospheric pressure. The Newton scale did not gain widespread acceptance and is not commonly used today, but it represents an early attempt to establish a temperature scale based on fixed points.
