How to Convert Kilohertz to Cycles per Second

To convert a measurement in kilohertz to a measurement in cycles per second, multiply the frequency by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 cycles per second/kilohertz.

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

cycles per second = kilohertz × 1,000

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilohertz to cycles per second using the formula above.
cycles per second = (5 kHZ × 1,000) = 5,000 cps

How Many Cycles per Second Are in a Kilohertz?

There are 1,000 cycles per second in a kilohertz, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 kHZ = 1,000 cps

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

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 103. Kilohertz can be abbreviated as kHZ; for example, 1 kilohertz can be written as 1 kHZ.

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 / Times
