How to Convert Revolutions Per Minute to Radians Per Second

To convert a revolution per minute measurement to a radian per second measurement, multiply the frequency by the conversion ratio. One revolution per minute is equal to 0.10472 radians per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

radians per second = revolutions per minute × 0.10472

The frequency in radians per second is equal to the revolutions per minute multiplied by 0.10472.

For example, here's how to convert 5 revolutions per minute to radians per second using the formula above.
5 RPM = (5 × 0.10472) = 0.523599 rad/s

Revolutions per minute and radians 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

Radians Per Second

Radians per second are a measure of angular frequency, or rotational speed, equal to the change in orientation or angle of an object in radians per second.

Radians per second can be abbreviated as rad/s, for example 1 radian per second can be written as 1 rad/s.
