We know that disturbance causing energy transfer from one point to another is called a wave. And each wave got different wavelength, time period, phase and Frequency. The Frequency Calculator will help us to calculate the frequency of any wave when its time period is known.

Frequency can be define as the total number of vibrations completed or the total number of waves passing by a particle in 1 second.

Frequency Formula

$F$ = $\frac{1}{T}$
where
F- frequency in Hz
T- Time period in sec.

 

How to Measure Frequency

Back to Top
Step 1 :  

Frequency Formula:


Frequency(f) = $\frac{1}{Time\ period(T)}$


Time period Formula:


Time period(T) = $\frac{1}{Frequency(f)}$ 


Where,


f = Frequency in Hz or s-1 


T = Time period in seconds.



Step 2 :  

State the equation you plan to use and plug in the values.

  1. If the time period of a wave is 0.07s, then calculate the frequency?


    Step 1 :  

    Given that:


    Time period(T) = 0.07sec


    Frequency(F) = ?



    Step 2 :  

    We know that:


    Frequency(f) = $\frac{1}{Time\ period(T)}$


    Frequency(f) = $\frac{1}{0.07 sec}$


    Frequency(f) = 14.2857143 sec-1


    Frequency(f) = 14.286sec-1 or Hz



    Answer  :  

    Frequency(f) = 14.286sec-1 or Hz



  2. Calculate the time period of a wave motion whose frequency is 360Hz?


    Step 1 :  

    Given that:


    Frequency(f) = 360 Hz


    Time period(T) = ?



    Step 2 :  

    We know that:


    Time period(T) = $\frac{1}{Frequency(f)}$ 


    Time period(T) = $\frac{1}{360}$


    Time period(T) = 0.00277777778 sec


    Time period(T) = 0.00278 sec



    Answer  :  

    Time period(T) = 0.00278 sec
