# Megahertz to Hertz Converter

Enter the frequency in megahertz below to get the value converted to hertz.

Results in Hertz: 1 MHz = 1,000,000 Hz

Do you want to convert hertz to megahertz?

## How to Convert Megahertz to Hertz

To convert a measurement in megahertz to a measurement in hertz, multiply the frequency by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 hertz/megahertz.

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

hertz = megahertz × 1,000,000

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

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

### How Many Hertz Are in a Megahertz?

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

1 MHz = 1,000,000 Hz

## What Is a 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 millions, or 106. Megahertz can be abbreviated as MHz; for example, 1 megahertz can be written as 1 MHz.

## What Is a Hertz?

One hertz is formally defined as the frequency of one cycle per second.

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
