How to Convert Cycles Per Second to Kilohertz

To convert a cycle per second measurement to a kilohertz measurement, divide the frequency by the conversion ratio. One kilohertz is equal to 1,000 cycles per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

kilohertz = cycles per second ÷ 1,000

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

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

Cycles per second and kilohertz are both units used to measure frequency. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

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 = CyclesTimes

Kilohertz

Kilohertz is a measure of frequency equal to one thousand cycles per second.

The kilohertz is a multiple of the hertz, which is the SI derived unit for frequency. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilohertz can be abbreviated as kHZ; for example, 1 kilohertz can be written as 1 kHZ.
