#### Kilohertz to Hertz

Kilohertz is unit of frequency in the International System of Units (SI). 1 kHz = 1000 Hz. The symbol is "kHz". To convert a kilohertz measurement to a hertz measurement, multiply the frequency by the conversion ratio.

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

hertz = kilohertz × 1,000

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

#### For example

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

5 kHZ = (5 × 1,000) = 5,000 Hz

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

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

1 kHZ = 1,000 Hz

#### 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.

#### 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
