Definitions:

Celsius (abbreviations: C, or °C, or deg C): also known as centigrade, is a SI metric scale and unit of measurement for temperature and used by most countries in the world. It is named with regard to the Swedish astronomer Anders Celsius (1701–1744), who developed a similar temperature scale.

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.

## How to Convert Degree Celsius to Degree Rankine

### Example: How many degree Rankine are equivalent to 69.22 degree Celsius?

As;

1 degree Celsius = (X+273.15)*(9/5) degree Rankine

69.22 degree Celsius = Y degree Rankine

Assuming Y is the answer, and by substitution principle;

Y equals ( (69.22+273.15)*(9/5) ) over 1, where X is substituted by 69.22

(i.e.) Y = ( (69.22+273.15)*(9/5) ) / 1 = 616.266 degree Rankine

Answer is: 616.266 degree Rankine are equivalent to 69.22 degree Celsius.
