How to Convert Revolutions per Minute to Radians per Second
To convert a measurement in revolutions per minute to a measurement in radians per second, multiply the frequency by the following conversion ratio: 0.10472 radians per second/revolution per minute.
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 frequency in revolutions per minute multiplied by 0.10472.
How Many Radians per Second Are in One Revolution per Minute?
There are 0.10472 radians per second in one revolution per minute, which is why we use this value in the formula above.
1 RPM = 0.10472 rad/s
The following formula can also be used to convert the frequency, in revolutions per minute, to an 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.
rad/s = 0.083333 × 2π
rad/s = 0.523599
Revolutions per minute and radians per second are both units used to measure frequency of rotation or revolution. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What Are Revolutions 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 / Time in Minutes

What Are Radians per Second?
Radians per second are a measure of angular frequency, or rotational speed, equal to the change in the angular orientation of an object over one second.
Radians per second can be abbreviated as rad/s; for example, 1 radian per second can be written as 1 rad/s.
In the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units. For example, rad/s is expressing a change in angle relative to a change in time.
