Enter the sampling frequency (hz) into the Nyquist Zone Frequency Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Nyquist Zone Frequency. 

Nyquist Zone Frequency Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Nyquist Zone Frequency.

NZ = Fs / 2


  • NZ is the Nyquist Zone Frequency (hz)
  • Fs is the sampling frequency (hz) 

To calculate the nyquist zone frequency, divide the sampling frequency by 2.

How to Calculate Nyquist Zone Frequency?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Nyquist Zone Frequency.

  1. First, determine the sampling frequency (hz). 
  2. Next, gather the formula from above = NZ = Fs / 2.
  3. Finally, calculate the Nyquist Zone Frequency.
  4. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem : 

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

sampling frequency (hz) = 150

NZ = Fs / 2 = ?
