The fahrenheit equivalent of the kelvin scale. 0 is absolute zero. 459.67 in rankine is 0 in Fahrenheit and so on. Basically it's a useless scale that was created to parallel kelvin, and provide the same functionality (thermodynamics is MUCH more useful when you surpass that whole division by zero thing) but it was never widely adopted.
