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.
