How to convert hertz to seconds
To calculate the time interval (seconds) of a frequency in hertz, divide 1 by the frequency. E.g. for a frequency of 10 Hz your time interval would be 1/10 = 0.1 seconds.
Frequency is measured in hertz with 1 hertz (Hz) being equivalent to 1 cycle per second. The formula to calculate frequency (hertz) from a number of seconds is:
Frequency (Hz) = cycles / seconds
To calculate the time duration of one complete cycle, divide one second by the frequency in hertz:
Seconds = 1 / frequency (Hz)
How many seconds are in a hertz?
One hertz equals one cycle per second: 1 hz = 1 cycle/sec.
The following are conversions from hertz to seconds for a duration of one cycle.
|Hertz||Seconds||Cycles Per Second|
|1 hz||1 second||1 cycle/sec|
|2 hz||0.5 seconds||2 cycles/sec|
|3 hz||0.3333 seconds||3 cycles/sec|
|4 hz||0.25 seconds||4 cycles/sec|
|5 hz||0.2 seconds||5 cycles/sec|
|6 hz||0.1667 seconds||6 cycles/sec|
|7 hz||0.1429 seconds||7 cycles/sec|
|8 hz||0.125 seconds||8 cycles/sec|
|9 hz||0.1111 seconds||9 cycles/sec|
|10 hz||0.1 seconds||10 cycles/sec|
|20 hz||0.05 seconds||20 cycles/sec|
|30 hz||0.0333 seconds||30 cycles/sec|
|40 hz||0.025 seconds||40 cycles/sec|
|50 hz||0.02 seconds||50 cycles/sec|
|60 hz||0.0167 seconds||60 cycles/sec|
|70 hz||0.0143 seconds||70 cycles/sec|
|80 hz||0.0125 seconds||80 cycles/sec|
|90 hz||0.0111 seconds||90 cycles/sec|
|100 hz||0.01 seconds||100 cycles/sec|
|500 hz||0.002 seconds||500 cycles/sec|
|1000 hz||0.001 seconds||1000 cycles/sec|
|Seconds rounded to max 4 decimals.|
