## 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.

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

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.

### How Many Cycles Per Second are in a Megahertz?

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

1 MHz = 1,000,000 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 10^{6}. 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 = CyclesTime_{s}
