I know kelvin has no degrees because it is an absolute scale, but I've never seen rankine not be associated with a degree, yet it is also an absolute scale. Anyone know why this is?

Another absolute temperature scale is the Rankine (°R) scale, once used by engineers in the United States and based on the Fahrenheit (°F) temperature scale, with the freezing point of water defined as 491.67 °R. A degree Rankine, like a degree Fahrenheit, is 5/9 of a kelvin or degree Celsius.
Yes, but I still think (meant as an opinion, not as an assumption) °K would be more accurate.it is just Kelvin, no degrees
Yes! And I've read about many other scales I've never heard of before, too. I always thought Kelvin, Celsius, Fahrenheit and Réaumur were all.live and learn
