# what is the difference between time period and frequency

Frequency: Frequency ( ν ) is the number of complete oscillations or vibrations in 1 s. It is the inverse of time period (T).

So, the frequency is, Unit of frequency is s -1 or Hz (Hertz)

Time period is the time taken to complete one oscillation. It is measured in second, s.

Frequency (ν) is the number of complete oscillations or vibrations in 1 s. It is the inverse of time period (T).

So, the frequency is, Unit of frequency is s-1 or Hz (Hertz).

Time period of a wave is the time taken by a vibrating particle to make one complete vibration or it can be also defined as the time taken by a wave to move a distance equal to its wavelength. It is denoted by T. Its unit is second.

time Period and frequency are each others ' reciprocals.

Time period = 1 / frequency.

Frequency = 1 / time period.

frequency is the number of oscillations per second where as time period is the total time taken for one complete oscillation.....

hope this helps......... :)

Time period is a time between two set times. Like between 1950 and 1960. Frequency is the occurance of event. For example between 1950 and 1960 there where 12 UFO sightings.
