Enter the electrical potential and conversion factor into the calculator to determine the frequency in hertz. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

Volts To Hz Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the conversion from volts to hertz.

Hz = V * k


  • Hz is the frequency in hertz (Hz)
  • V is the electrical potential in volts (V)
  • k is the conversion factor (Hz/V)

To calculate the frequency in hertz, multiply the electrical potential in volts by the conversion factor. The conversion factor will depend on the specific characteristics of the electrical system or device.

What is Volts To Hz?

Volts to Hz is a conversion process used in electrical systems to change the measurement of electrical potential (volts) into the frequency of alternating current or electromagnetic waves (hertz). This is often used in applications such as variable frequency drives (VFDs) where the voltage input is converted to a frequency output to control the speed of electric motors. The conversion is typically done through electronic circuitry or software algorithms.

How to Calculate Volts To Hz?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Volts To Hz using the formula: Hz = V * k.

  1. First, determine the electrical potential in volts (V).
  2. Next, determine the conversion factor (k) in Hz/V.
  3. Next, gather the formula from above = Hz = V * k.
  4. Finally, calculate the frequency in hertz (Hz).
  5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
