Convert RPM to seconds

Post #1by SpaceFanatic64 » 29.09.2018, 16:27

Hello. I'm trying to convert RPM units to seconds for a spacecraft, but I don't know how to. Could anyone help me on how to do this?

To convert RPM to RPS, divide the number of revolutions per minute by the number of seconds in a minute. In other words, divide by 60:

1 RPM = 1 revolution per minute = 1/60 revolution per second.
