rpms vs rpm : Common Errors in English

About rpms vs rpm

“RPM” means “revolutions per minute,” so it is redundant to add an S at the end of the abbreviation—it’s already plural. Adding the S is so common among people working with engines that it’s not likely to get you into trouble, but you will impress some by avoiding it.

rpm Meaning(s)

  • (n) rate of revolution of a motor
