In mathematics, a rate is a ratio between two measurements with different units. If the unit or quantity in respect of which something is changing is not specified, usually the rate is per unit time. However, a rate of change can be specified per unit time, or per unit of length or mass or another quantity. The most common type of rate is "per unit time", such as speed, heart rate and flux. Ratios that have a non-time denominator include exchange rates, literacy rates and electric flux. In describing the units of a rate, the word "per" is used to separate the units of the two measurements used to calculate the rate. A rate defined using two numbers of the same units or counts will result in a dimensionless quantity, which can be expressed as a percentage or fraction or as a multiple. Often rate is a synonym of rhythm or frequency, a count per second; e.g., radio frequencies or heart rate or sample rate.
