Hello guys, I hope you all are doing great. In today’s tutorial, we will have a look at the **Difference Between Time Period and Frequency. **There are 2 most important parameters related to wave first one is a time period and the second one is frequency. These are inverse of one another. The basic difference among them is that the time period is the duration in which the cycle of a wave is completed. While the frequency is a completion of some wave cycles in certain time intervals.

As we know that wave is produced due to the vibration of an object. Also, we know that motion ha a relationship with motion. Therefore, any oscillating object consists of some amount of energy and force. So oscillation is known as periodic motion that is repeated after some time interval. In today’s post, we will compare both time periods and frequency and find their differences. So let’s get started with* the Difference Between Time Period and Frequency.*

## Difference Between Time Period and Frequency

**Time Period**

- The time interval over which the cycle of the wave is completed is called time period. It is also called the inverse of frequency.

- It is denoted as T.
- It also defines as cycles per second.
- It is the time taken to perform some work
- The time period is larger frequency is less
- The time needed to complete a single rotation for the wave is called the period
- Its measuring unit is second.
- It is the inverse of frequency
- Its formula is T=1/f.

**Frequency**

- The time through which the cycle is repeated is called a period it is the inverse of the frequency
- It is used to discuss the rate of oscillation and vibration in different scientific fields.
- It employed for observation of light frequency in different aspect

- Frequency also called the inverse of the time period.
- One hertz is equal to the complete rotation in one second.
- One complete waveform of the current is called a cycle
- The frequency of ac system is sixty or fifty hertz according to our country
- The range of frequency that can be heard is fifteen hertz to twenty-kilo hertz
- Radiofrequency has thirty to three hundred hertz
- One-half cycle called alternation

- It is denoted as f’.
- F=I/t
- It is measured in hertz.
- It formula is f=v/λ.
- The sound of frequency which we can lies between twenty hertz to twenty-kilo hertz.

## Time Period vs Frequency

**Time Period**

- Time needed for the completion of a single cycle is called time period
- it denoted as T and the unit is seconds
- its formulate is T=1/F
- Frequency and period are reversed to each other
- If the frequency increases time period decreases
- Time period defines sound pitch
- It is used for filter circuits and oscillators

**Frequency**

- If any event has repetition in unit time called frequency.
- Its symbol is f and its unit is Hertz
- it is also inverse to time period
- Its formula is T × f = 1
- It is used in signal processing and communication systems.

**Relation between Time Period & Frequency**

- If there is a high value of frequency then time period is low. Since both are inverse to each other. Their relation defined as

Time Period = 1/ Frequency

**Faqs**

### Is frequency equal to 1 time period?

- According to the frequency formula F=1/T, here T is time period. T is the time taken to complete one cycle. Time period is inverse with frequency.

### What are the two types of time period?

- Time has two periods, Prehistoric period and the historical period
**.**Protohistory is defined as the period between the prehistoric period and modern history.

### What happens to frequency when time period decreases?

- Frequency is occurrences of any event repeating in unit time. When the frequency of the wave increases time period of the wave reduces.

### What are the 3 types of frequency?

- Categorical frequency distribution.
- Grouped frequency distribution.
- Ungrouped frequency distribution.

### What are the 4 main time periods?

- Ancient Times (600 B.C. to 476 A.D.)
- The Middle Ages (476 A.D. to 1450 A.D.)
- Early Modern Era (1450 A.D. to 1750 A.D.)
- Modern Era (1750 A.D to Present)

### What is the highest level of frequency?

- The highest Hz humans can hear is about
**20,000 Hz**. It is a high audible frequency for adults, some children and young can hear sounds higher then this level

### What is the lowest frequency?

- For the electromagnetic spectrum lowest frequency value is
**300 GHz to 3 kHz**and called radio waves.
