How to Convert Hertz to Cycles Per Second

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

cycles per second = hertz ÷ 1

The frequency in cycles per second is equal to the hertz divided by 1.

For example, here's how to convert 5 hertz to cycles per second using the formula above.
5 Hz = (5 ÷ 1) = 5 cps

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

Hertz

Hertz is formally defined as the frequency equalling one cycle per second.[1]

The hertz is the SI derived unit for frequency in the metric system. Hertz can be abbreviated as Hz, for example 1 hertz can be written as 1 Hz.

Frequency in hertz can be expressed using the formula: Hz = CyclesTimes

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
