**FREQUENCY**

This is simply calculated at how many **cycles** (waves) occur every second. These cycles are repeated so really we only need to look at how many cycles (waves) occur in one second.

*The result is measured as cycles/second and this unit of frequency is called a Hertz and the abbreviation is Hz. *

Using the waves/arcs analogy above think of each wave as a cycle and the amount of waves that are dispersed in one second are calculated as frequency. You cannot get simpler than that…..how many cycles hit you in one second.
