## How to Convert Revolutions Per Minute to Degrees Per Second

To convert a revolution per minute measurement to a degree per second measurement, multiply the frequency by the conversion ratio.

Since one revolution per minute is equal to 6 degrees per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The frequency in degrees per second is equal to the revolutions per minute multiplied by 6.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 revolutions per minute to degrees per second using the formula above.

### How Many Degrees Per Second are in a Revolution Per Minute?

There are **6** degrees per second in a revolution per minute, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 RPM = 6 °/s

Revolutions per minute and degrees 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 = RevolutionsTime_{m}

## Degrees Per Second

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

Degrees per second can be abbreviated as *°/s*; for example, 1 degree per second can be written as 1 °/s.

In formal expressions, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to separate units used to indicate division in an expression.^{[1]}
