## How to Convert Degrees Per Second to Cycles Per Second

To convert a degree per second measurement to a cycle per second measurement, divide the frequency by the conversion ratio. One cycle per second is equal to 360 degrees per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

The frequency in cycles per second is equal to the degrees per second divided by 360.

**For example,**here's how to convert 500 degrees per second to cycles per second using the formula above.

Degrees per second and cycles per second are both units used to measure frequency. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Degrees Per Second

Degrees per second are a measure of angular frequency, or rotational speed, equal to the change in orientation or angle of an object in degrees per second.

Degrees per second can be abbreviated as *°/s*, for example 1 degree per second can be written as 1 °/s.

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.^{[1]}

## Cycles Per Second

Cycles per second are a measure of the number of oscillations, or cycles, that occur per second.

Cycles per second can be abbreviated as *cps*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *c/s* or *cycles/second*. For example, 1 cycle per second can be written as 1 cps, 1 c/s, or 1 cycles/second.

Cycles per second can be expressed using the formula:
cps = CyclesTime_{s}
