Formulas

°Rø = ( K - 273.15 ) * 21 / 40 + 7.5

K = ( °Rø - 7.5 ) * 40 / 21 + 273.15


Scale information

Rømer

The Rømer scale is a temperature scale named after the Danish astronomer Ole Christensen Rømer (1644-1710), who proposed it in 1701. The freezing point of water is set at 7.5°Rø and the boiling point at 60°Rø.

Kelvin

The Kelvin scale is a thermodynamic (absolute) temperature scale referenced to absolute zero. The kelvin is a unit of measurement for temperature. Both are named after the Belfast-born engineer and physicist William Thomson, 1st Baron Kelvin (1824-1907), who in 1848 whote of the need for an "absolute thermometric scale". The freezing point of water is set at 273.15K and the boiling point at 373.1339K.
