#### Gigahertz to hertz

The gigahertz is a decimal multiple unit of the SI derived unit of frequency hertz which is equal to 109 Hz. The symbol for gigahertz is GHz. The hertz is the unit of frequency in SI units equivalent to cycles per second. It is defined as the number of cycles per second of a periodic phenomenon. It is most commonly used to describe of the sine wave, particularly those used in radio and audio applications , such as the frequency of musical tones. The symbol for herz is Hz.

To convert a gigahertz measurement to a hertz measurement, multiply the frequency by the conversion ratio.

Since one gigahertz is equal to 1,000,000,000 hertz, you can use this simple formula to convert:

hertz = gigahertz × 1,000,000,000

The frequency in hertz is equal to the gigahertz multiplied by 1,000,000,000.

#### For example

here's how to convert 5 gigahertz to hertz using the formula above.

5 GHz = (5 × 1,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000 Hz

#### How Many Hertz are in a Gigahertz?

There are 1,000,000,000 hertz in a gigahertz, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 GHz = 1,000,000,000 Hz

Gigahertz and hertz are both units used to measure frequency.

#### Gigahertz

Gigahertz is a measure of frequency equal to one billion cycles per second.

The gigahertz is a multiple of the hertz, which is the SI derived unit for frequency. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for 109. Gigahertz can be abbreviated as GHz; for example, 1 gigahertz can be written as 1 GHz.

#### Hertz

Hertz is formally defined as the frequency equalling one cycle per second.

The hertz is the SI derived unit for frequency in the metric system. Hertz can be abbreviated as Hz; for example, 1 hertz can be written as 1 Hz.

Frequency in hertz can be expressed using the formula:

Hz = Cycles/Times
