When those waves hit your eardrums, your brain interprets them as sounds, and the timing of these of waveforms are what we refer to as Frequency. Frequency is measured in Hertz, or Hz. Hertz is also referred to as cycles per second.

The more cycles per second, the higher pitch the sound will be. The fewer cycles per second, the lower the sound pitches. For example, the lowest C on a piano registers around 32 Hertz. Well, the highest note on the piano comes in about 4186 Hertz, or 4.186 Kilohertz. We generally start using Kilohertz when talking about the higher ranges of frequencies. It's generally accepted that the range ...
