#### Hertz to Gigahertz

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. 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.To convert a hertz measurement to a gigahertz measurement, divide 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:

gigahertz = hertz ÷ 1,000,000,000

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

#### For example

here's how to convert 5,000,000,000 hertz to gigahertz using the formula above.

5,000,000,000 Hz = (5,000,000,000 ÷ 1,000,000,000) = 5 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

#### 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.
