if u wana find the frequency, which is the number of cycles per second, find out how many breaths u take in 1 sec and put it in2 the formula, it is basic conversion thats all, it is easier that you think, just stop thinking "complicated", think basic :) hope this helps :)

A tiny important thing to remember is what Hertz are.
[tex]1 Hz \equiv \frac {1}{second}[/tex]
