Unit Conversion

Postby Giovanni Anguiano-Gutierrez 3L » Sun Oct 20, 2019 9:35 pm

How do we convert mHZ to Hz? Is that even necessary when finding wavelength?

1 mHz = 1000000 Hz

Unless the problem specifies to use mHz (megahertz), you should always be using Hz.

The prefix Mega (M) in SI units always means 10^6. So 1 MHz is 1*10^6 Hz.

I MHz is equivalent to 10^6 Hz, so using that conversion you should be able to go from MHz to Hz and vice versa.

Since mega- translates to 10^6, 1 Hz would translate to 1*10^6 mHz
