Solving for frequency

Postby Emily Kennedy 4L » Fri Oct 12, 2018 5:13 pm

So, when you're trying to find the frequency of a wavelength why would you want to convert the units from s^-1 to Hz?

Hertz (Hz) is the unit of measurement used when denoting frequency which is why it would be proper to express a frequency in terms of hertz.

Hertz (Hz) and s-1 are equivalent units. You can use either one for frequency.

Hz and S-1 are both units of frequency, but in almost every additional example that I have come across, the frequency has been measured in Hz. Would an equivalent in both be acceptable?
