Does that apply to hertz as well? As in 1024 hertz = 1 kilohert, 1024 kilohertz = 1 megahert, 1024 megahertz = 1 gigahert, 1024 gigahertz = 1 terahert?

Or is the hertz range metric i.e 100 hertz to a kilohert and so on?

Been a while since I studied this stuff so it's small little facts like this I forget every now and then.
Hertz is a frequency and cant be compared to storage. However it does go 100, 1000, 10000, and so on.
