Hertz (Hz)

From Wikipedia: The hertz (symbol Hz) is the unit of frequency in the International System of Units (SI) and is defined as one cycle per second. It is named for Heinrich Rudolf Hertz, the first person to provide conclusive proof of the existence of electromagnetic waves. As an example, generally speaking, the Low A on modern bagpipes sound somewhere near the pitch of 480Hz.
