**Hertz**

**Hertz (Hz)**is a unit in the category of

*Frequency*. This unit is commonly used in the SI unit system. Hertz (Hz) has a dimension of T

^{-1}where T is time. It essentially the same as the corresponding standard SI unit /s.

Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).

Other units in the category of Frequency include Cycles Per Second (cps).
