How to Convert Megahertz to Cycles Per Second

To convert a megahertz measurement to a cycle per second measurement, multiply the frequency by the conversion ratio. One megahertz is equal to 1,000,000 cycles per second, so use this simple formula to convert:

cycles per second = megahertz × 1,000,000

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

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

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

Megahertz

Megahertz is a measure of frequency equal to one million cycles per second.

The megahertz is a multiple of the hertz, which is the SI derived unit for frequency. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 109. Megahertz can be abbreviated as MHz, for example 1 megahertz can be written as 1 MHz.

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 = CyclesTimes
