## How to Convert Gigahertz to Cycles Per Second

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

The frequency in cycles per second is equal to the gigahertz multiplied by 1,000,000,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 gigahertz to cycles per second using the formula above.

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

## Gigahertz

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

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

## 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 = CyclesTime_{s}
