a blade that rotates 11 times in one second:

break it down.
360 degrees * 11 (per sec)
1 second = fps (fps is the frames-per-second preference setting)

rotation = current frame/fps * 360 * 11

I will let you look up the melscript command that returns current frame and fps.
It'll be good exercise.
