Enter the sampling period (seconds) into the Sampling Frequency Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Sampling Frequency. 

Sampling Frequency Formula

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

fs = 1/Ts


  • fs is the Sampling Frequency (hz)
  • Ts is the sampling period (seconds) 

To calculate the sampling frequency, divide 1 by the sampling period.

How to Calculate Sampling Frequency?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Sampling Frequency.

  1. First, determine the sampling period (seconds). 
  2. Next, gather the formula from above = fs = 1/Ts.
  3. Finally, calculate the Sampling 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 period (seconds) = 30

fs = 1/Ts = ?
