Formula: Relationship between Period and Frequency
Frequency of a Sinusoidal Wave

Period

Unit
Period is the duration of an oscillation. In the case of a circular motion, the period indicates the time required by a body to complete one revolution. In the case of an oscillation, the period is the time after which the wave reaches the same amplitude value and phase.

Frequency

Unit
Frequency is the number of oscillations per second. \( 10 \, \mathrm{Hz}\) means that the oscillation is performed 10 times per second.
