Frequency Conversion


Frequency Units

The frequency units in the frequency converter are attohertz, centihertz, decihertz, degree hour, degree minute, degree second, dekahertz, exahertz, femtohertz, gigahertz, hectohertz, hertz, kilohertz, megahertz, microhertz, millihertz, nanohertz, petahertz, picohertz, radian/hour, radian/minute, radian/second, revolution/hour, revolution/minute and terrahertz.

The frequency unit in the metric system is Hertz (Hz). Other common frequency units are kilohertz (KHz), megahertz (MHz) and gigahertz (GHz).

One Hertz (Hz) means that an event repeats once per second, kilohertz (KHz) means one thousand times per second, megahertz (MHz) means one million times per second and gigahertz (GHz) means one billion times per second.

What is Frequency?

Frequency is defined as the measure of the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit time.

To calculate the frequency, the number of occurrences of the event within a fixed time interval are counted and then it's divided by the length of the time interval.

Frequency calculation formula is: Frequency = 1 / Time
