Frequency

Definition: The frequency is the number of oscillation per unit time. It is used for defining the cyclic process like rotation, oscillation, wave etc. The completion of the cyclic process at particular interval of time is known as the frequency. The SI unit of the frequency is Hertz. The symbol λ represents it. The one…

Methods of Measurements

The measurement is the result of the comparison of standard and the unknown quantity. The result of the measured quantity is generally expressed in numeric forms. In other words, the measurement is the process through which the physical parameters like heat, displacement, force etc. is converted into the easily readable numeric value. Methods of Measurement…
