An American power supply operates at 60 Cycles per second so one cycle is 1/60 of a second. A 60 Hz power system has a period of 1/60 = 0.016667 seconds/cycle.
1/60 th of a second or 0.01666667 second. 1hz or 1 Hertz means 1 complete cycle per second so 60hz means 60 complete cycles per second.
A cycle is one complete revolution of the sine wave. Hertz is the frequency of the alternating current, how many complete cycles per second. 60 Hertz would have 60 cycles each second.
One cycle of the sine wave is equal to 360 degrees. In US the frequency of power is typically 60 Hz and hence one cycle is 1/60 of a second. Therefore you can calculate the degrees at any instant of time. If at zero degrees the voltage amplitude is zero, then at 90 degrees,which is 1/4 cycle, wave is at peak voltage. At 180 degrees it is at 1/2 cycle and zero voltage and then at 270 degrees it is 3/4 of the cycle and a peak negative voltage. Finally at 360 degrees the cycle is complete and the voltage is again zero.
1/6th of a cycle is 60 degrees or (pi/3) radians.
period is the time duration of one cycle of the waveform, and is measured in seconds/cycle. AC power at 50 Hz will have a period of 1/50 = 0.02 seconds/cycle. A 60 Hz power system has a period of 1/60 = 0.016667 seconds/cycle
60 percent of the time they complete it everytime
A unit of "time" invented by humans which is a measure equal to 1/60 of one "minute", which is equal to 1/60 of one "hour", which is equal to 1/24 of one complete "day". The list goes on..
Electricity, or AC (alternating current) runs in cycles. It has a positive and negative cycle. One cycle is also referred to as one hertz. In electronics a cycle is also known as a hertz. So when referring to 60 hertz, look at it as seeing one cycle 60 times in a second.
There is one second in 60 cycles. So 5 cycles is equal to about 0.012 seconds or 12 milliseconds.AnswerThe periodic time is the reciprocal of frequency. So the answer to your question is 1/60 s or 16.67 ms.
It must cycle 3000 times in 8 hours. 8/3000 hr/cycle * 60 minutes/hr * 60 seconds/minute = 28800/3000 seconds/cycle = 9.6 seconds/cycle
