How to Convert Cycles per Second to Hertz

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

Since one hertz is equal to 1 cycle per second, you can use this simple formula to convert:

hertz = cycles per second ÷ 1

The frequency in hertz is equal to the frequency in cycles per second divided by 1.

For example, here's how to convert 5 cycles per second to hertz using the formula above.
hertz = (5 cps ÷ 1) = 5 Hz

How Many Hertz Are in One Cycle per Second?

There are 1 hertz in one cycle per second, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 cps = 1 Hz

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 Hertz?

One hertz is formally defined as the frequency of one cycle per second.[1]

The hertz is the SI derived unit for frequency in the metric system. Hertz can be abbreviated as Hz; for example, 1 hertz can be written as 1 Hz.

Frequency in hertz can be expressed using the formula:

Hz = Cycles / Time in Seconds
