Hertz are a measurement of how many cycles or calculations that a processor can manage per second.

1 Hertz would 1000 cycles per second

1 Mega Hertz would be 1 million cycles per second

1 Giga Hertz would be 1 billion cycles per second

so a 1.4 GHz would be 1 billion 400 million cycles per minute.

Hope this helps.
