## How to Convert Hertz to Kilohertz

To convert a measurement in hertz to a measurement in kilohertz, divide the frequency by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 hertz/kilohertz.

Since one kilohertz is equal to 1,000 hertz, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The frequency in kilohertz is equal to the frequency in hertz divided by 1,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5,000 hertz to kilohertz using the formula above.

Hertz and kilohertz 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 is a Kilohertz?

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

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 10^{3}. Kilohertz can be abbreviated as *kHZ*; for example, 1 kilohertz can be written as 1 kHZ.
