## What is a Gigahertz?

A gigahertz is a unit used to measure frequency.

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 10^{9}. Gigahertz can be abbreviated as *GHz*; for example, 1 gigahertz can be written as 1 GHz.

## How Much is a Gigahertz?

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

## How to Convert Gigahertz

To convert gigahertz to another unit of frequency, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor.
A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.^{[1]}

You can find the conversion factors for gigahertz in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the frequency measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

gigahertz × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
