# Frequency Unit Converter

Last updated: Saturday, April 29, 2023

In physics, frequency refers to the number of cycles or repetitions of a periodic wave that occur in a given amount of time. It is usually measured in units of hertz (Hz), which represents the number of cycles per second.

Here are a few examples of frequency in real-life situations:

Sound waves: The frequency of a sound wave determines its pitch. For example, a high-pitched sound has a higher frequency than a low-pitched sound.

Electrical power: The frequency of the electrical power grid is typically 50 or 60 Hz. This frequency is important for the operation of electrical devices, such as motors and transformers.

The concept of frequency is important in many fields of science and engineering, including acoustics, optics, and electronics.

The SI unit of Frequency is hertz [ Hz ]
