Ammonia is a classic interstellar thermometer. The estimation of the rotational and kinetic temperatures can be affected by the blended Hyperfine Components (HFCs). We developed a new recipe, referred to as the HyperFine Group Ratio (HFGR), which utilizes only direct observables, namely the intensity ratios between the grouped HFCs. As tested on the model spectra, the empirical formulae in HFGR can derive the rotational temperature ($T_{\rm rot}$) from the HFC group ratios in an unambiguous… Expand
