  frequency - a definition from Whatis.com
For an oscillating or varying current, frequency is the number of complete cycles per second in alternating current direction.
The standard unit of frequency is the hertz, abbreviated Hz.
Frequency is important in wireless communications, where the frequency of a signal is mathematically related to the wavelength.

  Frequency - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Frequency is the measurement of the number of times that a repeated event occurs per unit of time.
The frequency f is equal to the speed v of the wave divided by the wavelength λ (lambda) of the wave:
In Europe, the frequency of the alternating current in mains is 50 Hz (close to the tone G), however, in North America, the frequency of the alternating current is 60 Hz (close to the tone B flat — that is, a minor third above the European frequency).

 Frequency modulation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Frequency modulation (FM) is a form of modulation which represents information as variations in the instantaneous frequency of a carrier wave.
Problematically, however, frequency drift or lack of selectivity may cause one station or signal to be suddenly overtaken by another on an adjacent channel.
Note that frequency modulation can be regarded as a special case of phase modulation where the carrier phase modulation is the time integral of the FM modulating signal.

 Waves   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Frequency is a measurement of how often a recurring event such as a wave occurs in a measured amount of time.
The frequencies of standing waves or those that oscillate in place are the rate of oscillation in units of cycles per unit time.
Although frequency is a measurement of rate of movement, it is not identical to velocity.

 Frequency
Measuring the frequency of sound, electromagnetic waves (such as radio or light), electrical signals, or other waves, the frequency in hertz is the number of cycles of the repetitive waveform per second.
The frequency f is equal to the speed v of the wave divided by the wavelength λ; (lambda) of the wave:
The frequency of the standard pitch tone A above middle C is nowadays set at 440 Hz that is 440 cycles per second (or slightly higher) and known as concert pitch, after which an orchestra is tuned.

 FREQUENCY DISTRIBUTIONS
Frequency distribution: A distribution showing the number of observations associated with each score value in a set of data that is quantitative in nature.
A histogram is a pictorial representation of a frequency distribution in which the scores (X) are plotted on the X-axis of a graph and the frequency (or relative frequency) of occurrences is plotted on the Y-axis.
A frequency polygon is a pictorial representation of a frequency distribution in which the scores (X) are plotted on the X-axis of the graph and the frequency (or relative frequency) of occurrences is plotted on the Y-axis.

 The Physics Classroom
The frequency of a wave is measured as the number of complete back-and-forth vibrations of a particle of the medium per unit of time.
And of course the frequency at which each particle vibrates is the same as the frequency of the original source of the sound wave.
When two sounds with a frequency difference of greater than 7 Hz are played simultaneously, most people are capable of detecting the presence of a complex wave pattern resulting from the interference and superposition of the two sound waves.

Since accuracy is related to the offset from an ideal value, frequency accuracy is usually stated in terms of the frequency offset.
Frequency drift may be in either direction (higher or lower frequency) and is not necessarily linear.
Frequency mixers are commonly employed in frequency measurement systems (as shown in the graphic below), to convert a high frequency to a low frequency, and to obtain more measurement resolution.

 Frequency (film) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Frequency is a 2000 movie directed by Gregory Hoblit and starring Jim Caviezel and Dennis Quaid.
John Sullivan (Caviezel), having broken family tradition by becoming a New York City policeman, instead of a fireman — his father, Frank Sullivan (Quaid), died 30 years ago in a warehouse fire, shortly after Game 2 of the 1969 World Series — and going through personal turmoil, discovers his father's ham radio and begins transmitting.
A major subplot of Frequency is the 1969 World Series between the New York Mets and the Baltimore Orioles.
