## How to Convert Cycles per Second to Gigahertz

To convert a measurement in cycles per second to a measurement in gigahertz, divide the frequency by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000,000 cycles per second/gigahertz.

Since one gigahertz is equal to 1,000,000,000 cycles per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

gigahertz = cycles per second ÷ 1,000,000,000

The frequency in gigahertz is equal to the frequency in cycles per second divided by 1,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 500,000,000 cycles per second to gigahertz using the formula above.
gigahertz = (500,000,000 cps ÷ 1,000,000,000) = 0.5 GHz

## What Are Cycles per Second?

Cycles per second are a measure of the number of oscillations, or cycles, that occur per second.

Cycles per second can be abbreviated as cps, and are also sometimes abbreviated as c/s or cycles/second. For example, 1 cycle per second can be written as 1 cps, 1 c/s, or 1 cycles/second.

Cycles per second can be expressed using the formula: cps = Cycles / Times

## What Is a Gigahertz?

Gigahertz is a measure of frequency equal to one billion cycles per second.

The gigahertz is a multiple of the hertz, which is the SI derived unit for frequency. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for billions, or 109. Gigahertz can be abbreviated as GHz; for example, 1 gigahertz can be written as 1 GHz.
