How to Convert Radians per Second to Kilohertz

To convert a measurement in radians per second to a measurement in kilohertz, multiply the frequency by the following conversion ratio: 0.000159 kilohertz/radian per second.

Since one radian per second is equal to 0.000159 kilohertz, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilohertz = radians per second × 0.000159

The frequency in kilohertz is equal to the frequency in radians per second multiplied by 0.000159.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000 radians per second to kilohertz using the formula above.
kilohertz = (5,000 rad/s × 0.000159) = 0.795775 kHZ

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

What Are Radians per Second?

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

Radians per second can be abbreviated as rad/s; for example, 1 radian per second can be written as 1 rad/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, rad/s is expressing a change in angle relative to a change in time.

What Is a Kilohertz?

Kilohertz is a measure of frequency equal to one thousand cycles per second.

The kilohertz is a multiple of the hertz, which is the SI derived unit for frequency. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 103. Kilohertz can be abbreviated as kHZ; for example, 1 kilohertz can be written as 1 kHZ.
