#### Megahertz to Gigahertz

A megahertz (MHz) is a decimal multiple of the SI derived unit of frequency hertz defined as the number of cycles per second of a periodic phenomenon. This unit is used to describe the frequency of sounds, mechanical vibrations, and electromagnetic radiation (radio waves, light, and gamma rays). A gigahertz (GHz) is a decimal multiple of the SI derived unit of frequency hertz defined as the number of cycles per second of a periodic phenomenon. This unit is used to describe the frequency of sounds, mechanical vibrations, and electromagnetic radiation (radio waves, light, and gamma rays).

To convert a megahertz measurement to a gigahertz measurement, divide the frequency by the conversion ratio.

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

gigahertz = megahertz ÷ 1,000

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

#### For example

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

5,000 MHz = (5,000 ÷ 1,000) = 5 GHz

#### Megahertz

Megahertz is a measure of frequency equal to one million cycles per second.

The megahertz is a multiple of the hertz, which is the SI derived unit for frequency. In the metric system, "mega" is the prefix for 106. Megahertz can be abbreviated as MHz; for example, 1 megahertz can be written as 1 MHz.

#### 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.
