Clarification on Hz

Postby ZachMoore1C » Wed Apr 11, 2018 2:34 pm

Just to clarify, to calculate Hz you just count how many cycles per second occur correct?

Yup...Hz is just a measurement of the frequency in which waves occur. They also have to be a complete wave cycle.

I agree that Hz is the frequency of the waves, which is counted through complete wave cycles (one peak and one trough per cycle)

Yes, 1 Hz = 1 s-1 (one cycle per second).

Hertz is number of cycles per second

Yeah!! Hertz is the number of cycles per second. It is a cycle once a point repeats itself. (You can count the troughs and peaks but it is safer to use the start of the starting point of the cycle itself to count)
