How to Convert Degrees per Second to Revolutions per Minute

To convert a measurement in degrees per second to a measurement in revolutions per minute, divide the frequency by the following conversion ratio: 6 degrees per second/revolution per minute.

Since one revolution per minute is equal to 6 degrees per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

revolutions per minute = degrees per second ÷ 6

The frequency in revolutions per minute is equal to the frequency in degrees per second divided by 6.

For example, here's how to convert 5 degrees per second to revolutions per minute using the formula above.
revolutions per minute = (5 °/s ÷ 6) = 0.833333 RPM

How Many Revolutions per Minute Are in One Degree per Second?

There are 0.166667 revolutions per minute in one degree per second, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 °/s = 0.166667 RPM

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

What Are 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 the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units.[1] For example, °/s is expressing a change in angle relative to a change in time.

What Are Revolutions per Minute?

Revolutions per minute are a measure of the number of rotations, turns, or revolutions, that an object makes each minute.

Revolutions per minute can be abbreviated as RPM, and are also sometimes abbreviated as rev/min or r/min. For example, 1 revolution per minute can be written as 1 RPM, 1 rev/min, or 1 r/min.

Revolutions per minute can be expressed using the formula:

RPM = Revolutions / Time in Minutes
