How to Convert Revolutions per Minute to Kilohertz

To convert a measurement in revolutions per minute to a measurement in kilohertz, divide the frequency by the following conversion ratio: 60,000 revolutions per minute/kilohertz.

Since one kilohertz is equal to 60,000 revolutions per minute, you can use this simple formula to convert:

kilohertz = revolutions per minute ÷ 60,000

The frequency in kilohertz is equal to the frequency in revolutions per minute divided by 60,000.

For example, here's how to convert 50,000 revolutions per minute to kilohertz using the formula above.
kilohertz = (50,000 RPM ÷ 60,000) = 0.833333 kHZ

Revolutions per minute and kilohertz 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 Is a Kilohertz?

Kilohertz is a measure of frequency equal to one thousand cycles per second.

The kilohertz is a multiple of the hertz, which is the SI derived unit for frequency. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for thousands, or 103. Kilohertz can be abbreviated as kHZ; for example, 1 kilohertz can be written as 1 kHZ.
