Re: The Plural of RPM
I'm having a back-and-forth with an engineer about how to write more than one RPM. She wants to write, "RPM's." I freaked and said, "No, that would be saying, it's the Rotation Per Minute's problem."
I know, it doesn't make sense.
I want to simply write RPM, meaning Rotations Per Minute.
Am I correct or is there another way?
