RPM to Rads Calculator

Enter the total number rpms and the calculator will convert into radians per second and radians per minute.

RPM to Rads Formula

The following formula is used to convert rotations per minute to radians per second.

Rad/s = RPM * 6.283185307 / 60

  • Where Rad/s is radians per second
  • RPM is rotations per minute

RPM to Rads Definition

RPM to Rads is the conversion between rotations per minute to radians per second.

RPM to Rads Example

So how is RPM converted to rad/s?

First, you need to think of how many radians are in one rotation. Since one rotation can be considered a circle, we know that there are 2 pi radians in a circle = 6.282185 radians.

Next, we must convert the minutes to seconds, which we know of course is 60 seconds per minute.

Finally, we simply end up with the equation above we can use to convert from rpm to rads.
