# Hertz (Hz)

The hertz (symbol: Hz) is a unit used to measure the frequency of oscillation of electromagnetic waves.

• One hertz is defined as one complete cycle of oscillation per second.
• Hertz measure the number of complete oscillations of the perpendicular electric and magnetic fields of electromagnetic radiation per second.
• 1 Hertz (Hz) = 1 complete cycle of oscillation per second.
• 1 Kilohertz (kHz) = 1,000 (thousand) complete cycles of oscillation per second.
• 1 Megahertz (MHz) = 1,000,000 (million) complete cycles of oscillation per second.
• 1 Gigahertz (GHz) = 1,000,000,000 (billion) complete cycles of oscillation per second.
• 1 Terahertz (THz) = 1,000,000,000,000 (trillion) complete cycles of oscillation per second.
