# Megahertz to Hertz Converter

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

## Result 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.[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
