What is Celsius ScaleThe Celsius scale was invented in 1742 by the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius. It was initially defined by the freezing point of water and later changed its definition as being the melting point of ice. 100° C was defined as the boiling point of water. The Celsius scale is a derived scale once its defined in relation to the Kelvin temperature scale. 0 (zero) °C is exactly equivalent to 273.15 K, with a temperature difference of 1 °C equivalent to a difference of 1 K, meaning the unit size in each scale is the same.


What is Rankine ScaleThe Rankine temperature scale is an absolute temperature measurement based on the Fahrenheit temperature scale. The Rankine scale is named after William Rankine who first proposed it in 1859. The symbol for degrees Rankine is °R and 1 °R = 1 °F. Absolute zero is 0 °R or 491.67 °F.
