## What Is a Kilohertz?

A kilohertz is a unit used to measure frequency.

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.

## How Much Is a Kilohertz?

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

## How to Convert Kilohertz

To convert kilohertz 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 kilohertz 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.

kilohertz × conversion factor = result

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