cycles per second
Cycle per second. The cycle per second was a once-common English name for the unit of frequency now known as the hertz (Hz). The plural form was typically used, often written cycles per second, cycles/second, c.p.s., c/s, ~, or, ambiguously, just cycles. The term comes from the fact that sound waves have a frequency measurable in their

Cycle per second (cps – Rotational speed), frequency. Cycle per second was a once-common unit of frequency. With the organisation of the International System of Units (abbreviated SI from the French) in 1960, the cycle per second was officially replaced by the hertz, or reciprocal second—i.e. the cycle in cycle per second was dropped.
1 cycles per second is equal to 1 hertz. Note that rounding errors may occur, so always check the results. Use this page to learn how to convert between cycles/second and hertz.
Unit Descriptions. 1 Cycle per Second: A period of 1 second is equal to 1 Hertz frequency. Period is the inverse of frequency: 1 Hz = 1 cps. 1 Hertz: Hertz is the SI base unit of frequency defined as one cycle per second. The unit is named for Heinrich Rudolf Hertz.
Definition of cycles per second. : the number of recurrences of a periodic vibration or other wave-form activity occurring in the course of a second.
The transition occurs at a frequency of 9,192,631,770 cycles per second. This new technology provides regular, repeatable pulses at a very high rate of speed, up to 10 cycles per second and is designed to have an extended life cycle of >50 million cycles. In the US …
