How to Convert Revolutions Per Minute to Degrees Per Second

To convert a revolution per minute measurement to a degree per second measurement, multiply the frequency by the conversion ratio. One revolution per minute is equal to 6 degrees per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

degrees per second = revolutions per minute × 6

The frequency in degrees per second is equal to the 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.
5 RPM = (5 × 6) = 30 °/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.

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

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.
