How to Convert Kilohertz to Hertz

To convert a measurement in kilohertz to a measurement in hertz, multiply 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:

hertz = kilohertz × 1,000

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

For example, here's how to convert 5 kilohertz to hertz using the formula above.
hertz = (5 kHZ × 1,000) = 5,000 Hz

How Many Hertz Are in a Kilohertz?

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

1 kHZ = 1,000 Hz

Kilohertz and hertz 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 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
