That would be "...will taper off as rpm inscrease."
It's the 'r' that's plural, not the 'm' and the plural
is implied as RPM is short for Revolutions Per Minute.
Same as "RBI's", that's wrong; it's Runs Batted In,
it's the "R"s that are plural, not the "I"s, and there
would be no apostrophe either, it's just RPM or RBI.
Just a little nit that always bothers me. Yes, I know,
It is *my* problem.
I just can't brake the habit!
