**Full name:** kilohertz

**Symbol:** kHz

**Category type:** frequency

**Scale factor:** 1000

The SI derived unit for frequency is the hertz.

1 hertz is equal to 0.001 kilohertz.

Valid units must be of the **frequency** type.

You can use this form to select from known units:

The SI prefix "kilo" represents a factor of
10^{3}, or in exponential notation, 1E3.

So 1 kilohertz = 10^{3} .

The definition of a hertz is as follows:

The hertz (symbol Hz) is the SI unit of frequency. It is named in honour of the German physicist Heinrich Rudolf Hertz who made some important contributions to science in the field of electromagnetism.
