## Re: Curve fitting units

There are a couple mistakes (I believe) in your note.  MJG is right, this is fatigue (I recognize the MIL-HNDBK-5 equation).  So we need to be careful about how we treat this, and about what the definition of cycles is.  Please look at the attached Prime 3.0 sheet.

## Re: Curve fitting units

Borrowing on Fred's idea how about

cycles=1*Hz*sec

Math/label/unit

seems to work fine. Does anybody see a problem with this?

Well, Hz = 1/sec

so Hz sec is unitless.

Because (for fft's) I need Hz for frequency of vibration due to a rotating shaft, I set "RPM = Hz/60" (note the caps!)  Then I get the correct numerical value for the fft resolved frequency.  I like this answer:

Great. This is the new "DesKohlhepp Equation/Theory"

## Re: Curve fitting units

Hi Fred.

I prefer 1 RPM = 2 Pi / 60 Hz and 1 rev = 2 Pi.

Best regards.

Hmmm

so RPM =   rpm (already built-in)

And rev is a built-in and equals 2 pi.

Okay!

And cycle?

## Re: Curve fitting units

For cycle I guess that cycle = 1. Because then for the electrical alternating current you have  that 60 cycles/seg = 60 Hz which agrees with the usual frequency.

Best regards.

## Re: Curve fitting units

cycle = 1

cycle  + % = 2 but must be an error
