## How to convert radians to revolutions (rad to rev)

The formula for converting radians to revolutions is: rev = rad × 0.1591549431. To calculate the radian value in revolutions first substitute the radian value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 radian in revolutions we follow these steps:

rev = rad × 0.1591549431

rev = 1 × 0.1591549431

rev = 0.1591549431

In other words, 1 radian is equal to 0.1591549431 revolutions.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 5 radians to revolutions is:

- Understand the conversion formula: rev = rad × 0.1591549431
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 5 for rad so the formula becomes: rev = 5 × 0.1591549431
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 5 × 0.1591549431 = 0.7957747155 rev

In summary, 5 radians is equal to 0.7957747155 revolutions.

## Converting revolutions to radians

In order to convert the other way around i.e. revolutions to radians, you would use the following formula: rad = rev × 6.28318530685963. To convert revolutions to radians first substitute the revolution value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 revolution in radians we follow these steps:

rad = rev × 6.28318530685963

rad = 1 × 6.28318530685963

rad = 6.28318530685963

Or in other words, 1 revolution is equal to 6.28318530685963 radians.
