milliseconds are smaller than seconds so, it needs to be converted?f=1/period=1/10 ms=1/0.01=100 Hz
so, from the last zero u count 3 times to the right < to get 0.01? or do u have a chart to show the conversions?Yes,1000ms is 1sec.
so 1÷10000= 0.0001?When dividing by powers of 10 move the decimal one place to the left for every 0.
So 1/10 is 0.1
1/100 is 0.01
1/1000 is 0.001
Etc.
so ,when it's stated that the frequency of a pulse waveform is the reciprocal of the period, that means that the time (in some form of seconds)must be converted to get the correct frequency?if 1ms=0.001 than 10ms=0.01 .
I just know the conversion in my head didn't really do anything mathematical.
You just need to know that 1s is 1000ms.
okay yes got it... thanksOne second is made out of 1000 milliseconds. So its 1/1000=0.001
Let's take it in two steps.so, from the last zero u count 3 times to the right < to get 0.01? or do u have a chart to show the conversions?
The International System of Units (abbreviated SI) is the system that describes quantities and numerical relationships in science and engineering. These are the guys that define that 1/1000 of a second is called a millisecond, and is abbreviated ms, and one billion gigabytes is called an Exabyte, and is abbreviated EB. It started out as the metric system, and has expanded to cover all weights, measures, quantities, etc.do u have a chart to show the conversions?
Perhaps you should look at the definition of frequency: the number of cycles per second. 100Hz = 100 cycles/second. The period (T) is the time one cycle takes, so divide 1 second by 100 cycles (1/100) = .01 seconds per cycle.so ,when it's stated that the frequency of a pulse waveform is the reciprocal of the period, that means that the time (in some form of seconds)must be converted to get the correct frequency?
