# Degree per second

The degree per second is a unit of measurement of angular velocity (rotational speed). It is equal to 1/60 of a degree per minute, or 0.016666666666667 degrees per second.

##### How do you convert degrees to radians per second?

There are 2π radians in a complete revolution, so 1 radian is 360/(2π) = 180/π degrees. Thus, to convert degrees to radians per second, one simply multiplies by π/180. For example, if an object is rotating at 10 degrees per second, it is rotating at π/18 radians per second. How many degrees are in a minute? There are 60 degrees in a minute. How do you convert rpm to degrees s? To convert rpm to degrees per second, you need to multiply the number of rotations per minute by 6. What unit is angular velocity? Angular velocity is a vector quantity that measures the rate of change of an object's angular position over time. It is usually represented by the symbol omega (ω). The SI unit of angular velocity is radians per second. Is revolutions per second frequency? No. Revolution per second is a unit of angular velocity, not frequency. Frequency is a measure of the number of occurrences of a particular event within a given time period, typically expressed in units of Hertz.
