Frequency

A frequency ν is the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit of time.

 


Explanation

There is always a precise frequency determined by a particle, which is directly proportional to its mass

where

    m Rest mass
    c Speed of light
    h Planck constant

You can calculate this by combining Planck's quantum relation

with Einstein's mass-energy relation

 


Comment

The frequency is the reciprocal of the period duration.
