How to Convert Cycles per Second to Kilohertz

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

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

kilohertz = cycles per second ÷ 1,000

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

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

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 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 thousands, or 103. Kilohertz can be abbreviated as kHZ; for example, 1 kilohertz can be written as 1 kHZ.
