#### Hertz to Kilohertz

A hertz is a unit of frequency in the International System of Units (SI). The symbol for hertz is Hz. There are 1,000 hertz in a kilohertz. A kilohertz is a unit of frequency in the International System of Units (SI). The symbol for kilohertz is kHz. There are 0.001 kilohertz in a hertz.To convert a hertz measurement to a kilohertz measurement, divide the frequency by the conversion ratio.

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

kilohertz = hertz ÷ 1,000

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

#### For example

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

5,000 Hz = (5,000 ÷ 1,000) = 5 kHZ

#### 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

#### Kilohertz

Kilohertz is a measure of frequency equal to one thousand cycles per second.

The kilohertz is a multiple of the hertz, which is the SI derived unit for frequency. In the metric system, "kilo" is the prefix for 103. Kilohertz can be abbreviated as kHZ; for example, 1 kilohertz can be written as 1 kHZ.
