How to Convert Revolutions per Minute to Degrees per Second

To convert a measurement in revolutions per minute to a measurement in degrees per second, multiply 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:

degrees per second = revolutions per minute × 6

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 revolutions per minute to degrees per second using the formula above.
degrees per second = (5 RPM × 6) = 30 °/s

How Many Degrees per Second Are in One Revolution per Minute?

There are 6 degrees per second in one revolution per minute, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 RPM = 6 °/s

Revolutions per minute and degrees 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 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.
