60/(tempo marking)=seconds

Bpm means beat per MINUTE

so 60 bpm means 60 beats in 1 minute.

1 minute has 60 seconds, so 1 beat is 1 second

1 beat = 1 quarter note cause 4/4 is 4 beats per measure.

is it any deviation from 8 (5/8, 6/8 etc.) then there's 2 beats every second at a tempo of 60 bpm.
