"Hertz" or Hz means roughly "times per second". So a 1789772 Hz machine would run 1789772 cycles per second. So I guess you might say 1 cycle = 1 Hertz... but Hz isn't really a measurement that can be used that way (saying "1 Hertz" implies only once per second... which is misleading)

An instruction that takes 1 cycle to complete takes 1/1789772th of a second (assuming 1789772 Hz processor)
