Homework Help: Frequency and period

  1. Mar 8, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If I have a frequency of 29k Hz, then the period is 1/29000, which is 3.44 * 10^-5 second
    Is this correct?

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I am not sure about whether it is ms or second as when I try to read it from the scope I got .33 ms

    In that case it should be 0.034 ms.
