Unit kHz
Name kilohertz
Category Frequency
Details In the field of frequency, kHz (kilohertz) is a unit used to measure frequency, specifically to quantify the number of cycles that occur per second. One kilohertz is equivalent to 1,000 cycles per second, or 1,000 Hertz (Hz).

Frequency is an important aspect of many fields, particularly in physics, engineering, and electronics. It describes how often a periodic event, such as a wave or an oscillation, occurs within a specific time frame. In the context of audio signals, for example, frequency represents the pitch of a sound. As the frequency increases in kHz, the sound becomes higher in pitch.
