This calculator converts Revolutions Per Minute (**RPM**) to Hertz (**Hz**). RPM is a measure of the rotational speed while Hz is a unit of frequency. In this post we provide the formula, examples and definitions as well.

**Formula**

To convert RPM (Revolutions Per Minute) to Hz (Hertz), you can use the following formula:

**Hz = RPM/60**

This formula works because 1 Hz is equivalent to 1 cycle per second, and there are 60 seconds in a minute.

**Example Calculation:**

If you have a motor running at 1200 RPM, use the calculator above to find the equivalent value of Frequency (Hz) is 20.

For a value of 5000 RPM, the equivalent is 83.33 Hz.

**How to calculate Hz from RPM**

To calculate Hz value from Revolutions per minute, simply divide the RPM by 60.

**What is Hz?**

**Hertz (Hz)** is the unit of frequency in the International System of Units (SI). It measures the number of cycles per second of any periodic phenomenon, such as a wave or oscillation. Named after Heinrich Hertz, a German physicist who contributed significantly to the understanding of electromagnetic waves, Hertz is a fundamental concept in various fields, including physics, engineering, and electronics.

1 Hertz (Hz) equals 1 cycle per second. It quantifies how often an event repeats within one second.

**What is RPM?**

**RPM (Revolutions Per Minute)** is a unit of rotational speed that measures the number of full rotations completed by an object in one minute. It’s a common unit used to express the speed of rotation for various mechanical systems, such as engines, motors, turbines, and other rotating components.

**1 RPM** indicates that the object completes one full revolution in one minute. It describes how many times an object spins around its axis in a minute.
