# Revolutions per Minute to Cycles per Second Converter

Enter the frequency in revolutions per minute below to get the value converted to cycles per second.

## Result in Cycles per Second:

1 RPM = 0.016667 cps

Do you want to convert cycles per second to revolutions per minute?

## How to Convert Revolutions per Minute to Cycles per Second

To convert a measurement in revolutions per minute to a measurement in cycles per second, divide the frequency by the following conversion ratio: 60 revolutions per minute/cycle per second.

Since one cycle per second is equal to 60 revolutions per minute, you can use this simple formula to convert:

cycles per second = revolutions per minute ÷ 60

The frequency in cycles per second is equal to the frequency in revolutions per minute divided by 60.

For example, here's how to convert 5 revolutions per minute to cycles per second using the formula above.
cycles per second = (5 RPM ÷ 60) = 0.083333 cps

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

## 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

## What Are 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 = Cycles / Times
