frequency US English

The rate at which something occurs or is repeated over a particular period of time or in a given sample

frequency US Thesaurus

the frequency of errors

f in frequency US English

The rate at which a vibration occurs that constitutes a wave, either in a material (as in sound waves), or in an electromagnetic field (as in radio waves and light), usually measured per second

low frequency US English

(In radio) 30-300 kilohertz

low frequency New Oxford Dictionary for Writers & Editors

(two words, hyphen when attributive)

audio frequency US English

A frequency of oscillation capable of being perceived by the human ear, generally between 20 and 20,000 Hz

beat frequency US English

The number of beats per second, equal to the difference in the frequencies of two interacting tones or oscillations

frequency band US English

A range of frequencies in a spectrum between two limits, typically as used in radio or telecommunications

gene frequency US English

The ratio of a particular allele to the total of all other alleles of the same gene in a given population

high frequency US English

(In radio) a frequency of 3-30 megahertz

radio frequency US English

A frequency or band of frequencies in the range 104 to 1011 or 1012 Hz, suitable for use in telecommunications

video frequency US English

A frequency in the range used for video signals in television

high frequency New Oxford Dictionary for Writers & Editors

(two words, hyphen when attributive)

angular frequency US English

The frequency of a steadily recurring phenomenon expressed in radians per second. A frequency in hertz can be converted to an angular frequency by multiplying it by 2π

frequency hopping US English

A method of transmitting radio signals by repeatedly and rapidly changing the transmitter frequency

frequency response US English

The dependence on signal frequency of the output-input ratio of an amplifier or other device

medium frequency US English

A radio frequency between 300 kilohertz and 3 megahertz

natural frequency US English

The frequency at which a system oscillates when not subjected to a continuous or repeated external force

Nyquist frequency US English

The minimum rate at which a signal can be sampled without introducing errors, which is twice the highest frequency present in the signal

frequency distribution US English

A mathematical function showing the number of instances in which a variable takes each of its possible values

frequency modulation US English

The modulation of a radio or other wave by variation of its frequency, especially to carry an audio signal

fundamental frequency US English

The lowest frequency produced by the oscillation of the whole of an object, as distinct from the harmonics of higher frequency

intermediate frequency US English

The frequency to which a radio signal is converted during heterodyne reception

ultrahigh frequency US English

A radio frequency in the range 300 to 3,000 MHz

very low frequency US English

The band of frequencies between 3 and 30 kilohertz

very high frequency US English

The band of frequencies between 30 and 300 megahertz, typically used for broadcasting television signals

high-frequency trading US English

A type of algorithmic trading in which large volumes of shares are bought and sold automatically at very high speeds

frequency division multiplexing US English

A technique for sending two or more signals over the same telephone line, radio channel, or other medium. Each signal is transmitted as a unique range of frequencies within the bandwidth of the channel as a whole, enabling several signals to be transmitted simultaneously

ω in angular frequency US English

The frequency of a steadily recurring phenomenon expressed in radians per second. A frequency in hertz can be converted to an angular frequency by multiplying it by 2π
