## How to Convert Radians Per Second to Cycles Per Second

To convert a radian per second measurement to a cycle per second measurement, multiply the frequency by the conversion ratio. One radian per second is equal to 0.159155 cycles per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

The frequency in cycles per second is equal to the radians per second multiplied by 0.159155.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 radians per second to cycles per second using the formula above.

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

## Radians Per Second

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

Radians per second can be abbreviated as *rad/s*, for example 1 radian per second can be written as 1 rad/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}
