# Revolutions per Minute to Degrees per Second Converter

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

## Result in Degrees per Second:

1 RPM = 6 °/s

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

## 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.
