Enter the tempo in BPM and the conversion factor into the calculator to determine the frequency in Hz. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Bpm To Hz Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the conversion from BPM to Hz.

Hz = BPM / 60


  • Hz is the frequency in Hertz (cycles per second)
  • BPM is the tempo in Beats Per Minute

To calculate the frequency in Hz, divide the tempo in BPM by 60. This is because there are 60 seconds in a minute, so dividing the number of beats per minute by 60 gives the number of beats per second, which is the frequency in Hz.

What is Bpm To Hz?

BPM (Beats Per Minute) to Hz (Hertz) is a conversion used in music and sound engineering, representing the conversion of a tempo measurement to a frequency measurement. BPM measures the number of beats occurring in one minute, often used to quantify the pace of a piece of music. Hz, on the other hand, measures the number of cycles per second, typically used to quantify the frequency of a sound wave. Therefore, converting BPM to Hz allows one to understand the tempo of a piece of music in terms of its frequency.
