# Revolutions Per Minute to Radians Per Second Conversion

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

Since one revolution per minute is equal to 0.10472 radians per second, you can 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

The following formula can also be used to convert the frequency in revolutions per minute to angular frequency in radians per second:

rad/s = RPM / 60 × 2π

Thus, the angular frequency in radians per second is equal to the frequency in revolutions per minute divided by 60 times 2 times pi.

For example, here's how to convert 5 RPM to rad/s using this formula.
rad/s = 5 RPM / 60 × 2π

## 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 = Revolutions / Timem

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.

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.
