Details In the field of frequency, degree per second (°/s) is a unit that measures the rate of rotation or angular frequency. It quantifies how many degrees of rotation an object completes in one second. This is especially useful for describing the frequency of rotating systems or objects, such as wheels, gears, or any other mechanisms that exhibit rotational motion.

Angular frequency is different from linear frequency, which measures the number of cycles completed in a given time (usually in Hertz, Hz). Angular frequency uses degrees per second (°/s) or radians per second (rad/s) to describe the rotation speed, while linear frequency uses cycles per second (Hz) to describe oscillatory or wave-like movements.
