This conversion tool will convert a frequency value into different measurement units and display conversion scale related to the converted value.

Frequency is used to measure physical actions that are cyclic in nature, that follow a pattern which repeats many times such as oscillations and rotational movement.

Frequency is typically defined as the number of cycle completed in a unit period of time, where the SI unit for frequency which is the Hertz equals 1 cycle per second.

In rotational motion other units are used such as revolutions per minute (rpm), radians per second (rad/s) and degrees per minute (deg/min).

### Frequency Applications

Frequency is measured in many applications which include:

- Sound Waves
- Electromagnetism
- Electricity
- Light Waves
- Resonance
- Rotational Motion
