## 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:

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.

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}
