Definitions:

Rankine (abbreviations: R, or °R, or deg R): is a thermodynamic temperature based on an absolute scale named with regard to the Glasgow University engineer and physicist William John Macquorn Rankine, who proposed it in 1859.

Fahrenheit (abbreviations: F, or °F, or deg F): is a temperature scale based on one proposed in 1724 by Amsterdam-based physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686–1736), with regard to whom the scale is named.


How to Convert Degree Rankine to Degree Fahrenheit

Example: How many degree Fahrenheit are equivalent to 46.97 degree Rankine?


As;

1 degree Rankine = X-459.67 degree Fahrenheit

46.97 degree Rankine = Y degree Fahrenheit

Assuming Y is the answer, and by substitution principle;

Y equals ( 46.97-459.67 ) over 1, where X is substituted by 46.97

(i.e.) Y = ( 46.97-459.67 ) / 1 = -412.7 degree Fahrenheit

Answer is: -412.7 degree Fahrenheit are equivalent to 46.97 degree Rankine.
