# Measuring Frequency: Equipment & Best Way for Newbies

• paulseldon
In summary, the conversation centers around the topic of measuring the frequency, voltage, and current of the human body. The original poster is a newcomer looking for recommended equipment and methods, but is met with skepticism and requests for specific sources. The conversation also touches on the topic of measuring the voltage over time using an oscilloscope and the credibility of the information being discussed. Overall, the conversation is focused on the idea of measuring the body's frequencies and the legitimacy of the information being shared.

I am newbie in this forum as well as in this field.

Recently, I learned human body has certain frequency.
I want to experiment measuring the frequency, volt, current
upon the human body.

any recommended equipment and the best way to measure all three?
1. frequency
2. volt
3. currency

Thanks -

May I ask as to what sources you are basing your question.
This would greatly help in responsible comments from us.

My body has a frequency. The doctor measures it every time I go.

I am just reading a book. It has a human body has a very minute frequency, voltage, etc. I just want to measure myself. That's all.

If I want to measure the voltage of my body, how should I locate the voltmeter?
If I want to measure the voltage different over time, I heard I could use oscilloscope.
But, then, how should I locate the probe? Hummm.

Still puzzling -

Skeptic2, you kidding - Your doctor is physicist? Heart rate? You are talking about? Ho-Ho-Ho.

You need to supply us an exact references. This will not do.

Please write the author, title, book publisher, and year it was published. This is the type of citation that we require on here.

Zz.

It is so strange. I can find this information in wiki.
I have already found. Why they need for reference? The question you asked is more skeptic. Rather pushing me out from this forum, I presume.

The two links given seem to be about completely different subjects. The Wikipedia page is about infrasound (produced by external sources) and the human body's reaction to it. The blog post is about electrical frequencies of some kind that are supposedly associated with the human body, foods, etc.

I haven't found any references to this in legitimate-looking medical sources, so I strongly suspect that this is just another example of medical crackpottery.

## 1. What is frequency and why is it important to measure?

Frequency refers to the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit of time. In science, frequency is an important measurement because it provides information about the behavior and characteristics of a system or phenomenon. It can also be used to analyze patterns and make predictions.

## 2. What equipment is needed to measure frequency?

The most common equipment used to measure frequency is a frequency counter, which is an electronic instrument that counts the number of cycles of a periodic electrical signal. Other equipment such as oscilloscopes and signal generators can also be used to measure frequency.

## 3. Is there a best way to measure frequency for beginners?

The best way for beginners to measure frequency would be to use a frequency counter, as it is a simple and accurate tool. However, it is important to understand the basics of frequency measurement and how to use the equipment properly in order to obtain accurate results.

## 4. Are there any common mistakes to avoid when measuring frequency?

One common mistake is not selecting the appropriate range for the frequency being measured, which can lead to inaccurate results. It is also important to ensure that the equipment is properly calibrated and that there is no interference from other electronic devices.

## 5. Can frequency be measured for all types of signals?

Frequency can be measured for any type of periodic signal, such as electrical, mechanical, or electromagnetic signals. However, the equipment used to measure frequency may vary depending on the type of signal being measured.
