Frequency of a Periodic Function

The number of periods (or fraction of a period) completed for each unit traveled from left to right. Frequency is the reciprocal of period. For example, a graph with period 6 has frequency 1/6. That is, 1/6 of a period is completed for each unit traveled from left to right.
