I can't seem to find how to add rpm with the siunitx package. It would make sense to write something like \SI{10}{\revolution\per\minute} but of course this doesn't work, and the \per\minute part only gives me min^-1.

    rpm is a frequency measure. As such, min^-1 is the correct (SI-compliant) unit. – AlexG Sep 26 '16 at 10:10

    For example tex.stackexchange.com/q/6016: you need to declare a new unit – Joseph Wright Sep 26 '16 at 10:31
  • That made it. Could you write the answer so I can accept your answer? – aaragon Sep 26 '16 at 10:33
  • I think we should rather close this question as duplicate of the question linked by Joseph instead of adding a new (same) answer here … – Tobi Sep 26 '16 at 11:15

    @AlexG This is absolutely correct. If you have a look in DIN 1301-1 it's not "allowed". ;) – TimK Feb 3 '17 at 18:28
