Revolution Per Minute (rpm, rev/min) is a unit in the category of Angular velocity. It is also known as revolutions per minute, revs per minute, revolution/minute, rev/minute. This unit is commonly used in the UK, US unit systems. Revolution Per Minute (rpm, rev/min) has a dimension of aT-1 where T is time. It can be converted to the corresponding standard SI unit rad/s by multiplying its value by a factor of 0.10471975512.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).
Other units in the category of Angular velocity include Degree Per Minute (°/min), Degree Per Second (°/s), Radian Per Minute (rad/min), Radian Per Second (rad/s), and Revolution Per Second (rps, rev/s).
