Enter the total number of seconds it takes the particle to complete on oscillation to determine its frequency.

## Frequency of Oscillation Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the frequency of oscillation.

f = 1/ T

• Where f is the frequency (Hz)
• T is the time it takes to complete one oscillation (seconds)

## Frequency of Oscillation Definition

A frequency of oscillation is the number of oscillations of a particle under harmonic motion per second of time.

## Frequency of Oscillation Example

How to calculate a frequency of oscillation?

• 1.First, determine the time for one oscillation. Calculate the amount of time it takes to perform one oscillation.
• 2.Next, calculate the frequency. Determine the frequency using the formula above.
