# Rankine to Celsius

Well rankine and Celsius both these units for the measurement of temperature, well temperature is the fundamental quantity and Rankine is the derived unit which is used for the temperature measurement. Here in this article, we will define what a rankine is? And what a Celsius is? And after this we will consider how we can convert one unit to other units, that is rankine to Celsius and even vice versa.

## Rankine to Celsius

Well, temperature is the measure of a degree of hot or cold anybody is, this can also we understood as the amount of heat a body possesses, the SI unit of temperature is Kelvin, which is a non-negative unit.

What is a Celsius, well a Celsius is the derived unit which is considered in term of Kelvin for the definition.

Well, a zero degree Celsius is equal to 273.15 kelvin or we can say that one degree Celsius is the amount of heat which is required to increase the temperature of pure water by one degree.

Well in terms of Fahrenheit, we can say that a temperature of one degree Celsius is equal to a 1.8 degree Fahrenheit, this means that a temperature difference of degree when encountered is equal to 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit.

Coming on to rankine, this is also one of the highly used and derived unit which is used for temperature measurement.

When we talk about the conversion between the two units we can use the formula

Degree Celsius = degree rankine – 491.67/1.8 this is the formula, which is you put the value in one unit and then solve it then you will get the unit conversion or the equivalent of that unit in term of another unit.
