How to Convert Revolutions Per Minute to Hertz

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

hertz = revolutions per minute × 0.016667

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 revolutions per minute to hertz using the formula above.
5 RPM = (5 × 0.016667) = 0.083333 Hz

Revolutions per minute and hertz 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

Hertz

Hertz is formally defined as the frequency equalling one cycle per second.

The hertz is the SI derived unit for frequency in the metric system. Hertz can be abbreviated as Hz, for example 1 hertz can be written as 1 Hz.

Frequency in hertz can be expressed using the formula: Hz = CyclesTimes
