the fourth scale for measuring temperature is RANKINE...

Rankine

Both Kelvin and Rankine are absolute temperature scales (The bottom of the scale is absolute 0 meaning there is no lower temperature). Rankine is used more by engineers and Kelvin by scientists

The Rankine scale, like the Kelvin scale, establishes a zero point at "absolute zero", the theoretical minimum temperature of any matter. But the Rankine scale uses the same size "degree" as Fahrenheit, making zero degrees R = -459.67 °F. So in the four common scales, 0 R = -459.67 °F = 0 K = -273.15 °C.

A few engineering fields in the U.S. measure thermodynamic temperature using the Rankine scale.

reaumur scale, rankine scale

The scale is called the Rankine scale. It is essentially the Fahrenheit temperature increased by 459.67 degrees. Because it is based on absoute zero, there are no negative temperatures in Rankine.

The Rankine scale is one of the temperature scales used when an absolute temperature scale is needed. The Rankine scale is useful in calcluations of oil or gas present in an oil or gas reservoir (one of the factors in the equations is the ratio of standard temperature to formation temperature; generally add 460 to the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit to obtain degrees Rankine).

37 degrees Celsius = 558.27 degrees Rankine.

There are four units for temperature: Celsius, Kelvin, Fahrenheit, and Rankine. The Kelvin scale is the same as the Celsius scale, just with the zero point being absolute zero. The Rankine scale is the same thing for the Fahrenheit scale. ■

The Fahrenheit scale is not absolute and also is obsolete.The absolute scale is Kelvin.
