### Hertz

Abbrev. to Hz. The unit of measure of frequency. One Hertz is equal to one cycle in one second. (Hertz - German physicist 1857-1894).

The hertz (symbol Hz) is the unit of frequency in the International System of Units (SI). It is defined as one cycle per second. One of its most common uses is the description of the sine wave, particularly those used in radio and audio applications, such as the frequency of musical tones. The unit is named for Heinrich Rudolf Hertz, who was the f...

The standard unit of frequency, named after Heinrich Hertz, represented by the symbol Hz. One hertz is an event that repeats (or cycles) once per second, two hertz is an event that repeats (or cycles) twice per second, and so on.
