The reciprocal of the period is the frequency *f*, or the number of cycles per unit of time. The frequency *f* commonly is expressed in Hertz (Hz), or cycles per second. The equation becomes . The velocity *v* commonly is expressed in meters per second. The two quantities that often are used in the literature of wave motion are the *angular frequency*
