    Well, frequency is the reciprocal of period which the time it takes for one cycle to occur.  These units would be seconds/cycle.  Frequency is the number of cycles per second, so the units are cycle/second.  Since there really isn’t an official unit for cycles and the idea is implied in use of the term Hertz or frequency, the units are officially reported as s^-1.  For example, a cycle with a frequency of 5 cycles per second would be reported as 5 s^-1.
