## How to Convert Hertz to Kilohertz

To convert a hertz measurement to a kilohertz measurement, divide the frequency by the conversion ratio. One kilohertz is equal to 1,000 hertz, so use this simple formula to convert:

The frequency in kilohertz is equal to the 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.

## 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 = CyclesTime_{s}

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