# Hertz to Cycles per Second Converter

Enter the frequency in hertz below to get the value converted to cycles per second.

**Results in Cycles per Second:**

Do you want to convert cycles per second to hertz?

## How to Convert Hertz to Cycles per Second

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

Since one cycle per second is equal to 1 hertz, you can use this simple formula to convert:

cycles per second = hertz ÷ 1

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

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

### How Many Cycles per Second Are in a Hertz?

There are **1** cycle per second in a hertz, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 Hz = 1 cps

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

## What Is a Hertz?

One hertz is formally defined as the frequency of 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 = Cycles / Time in Seconds

## 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 / Time_{s}
