rotational frequency, f rot in centrifugation
The number of rotations divided by time:
f rot = d N d t
The synonyms rate of rotation, rate of revolution, centrifugal speed, centrifugation speed, and the traditional units of rotational frequency such as revolutions per minute, r.p.m., ppm, rev. min −1, r min −1, are not recommended.
