**Kinds of ThermodynamicTemperatureMeasure** :

*Celsius*(4 facts) - A ThermodynamicTemperatureMeasure. Kelvin differs from the Celsius scale in that the triple point of water is defined to be 273.16 degrees Kelvin while it is 0 degrees Celsius. The boiling point of water is 100 degrees Celsius. The magnitudes of intervals in the two scales are the same. By definition the conversion constant is 273.1*Kelvin*(5 facts) - SI ThermodynamicTemperatureMeasure. Symbol: K. It is one of the base units in SI (it is also a unit in the ITS system). It is defined as follows: the Kelvin is the fraction 1/273.16 of the thermodynamic temperature of the triple point of water*Rankine*(4 facts) - A ThermodynamicTemperatureMeasure. Note that 0 degrees Rankine is the same as the absolute zero (i.e. 0 degrees Kelvin)
