How to Convert Revolutions Per Minute to Cycles Per Second

To convert a revolution per minute measurement to a cycle per second measurement, multiply the frequency by the conversion ratio. One revolution per minute is equal to 0.016667 cycles per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

cycles per second = revolutions per minute × 0.016667

The frequency in cycles per second is equal to the revolutions per minute multiplied by 0.016667.

For example, here's how to convert 5 revolutions per minute to cycles per second using the formula above.
5 RPM = (5 × 0.016667) = 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.

Revolutions Per Minute

Revolutions per minute are a measure of the number of turns, or revolutions, that occur per 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 = RevolutionsTimem

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 = CyclesTimes
