• kilohertz is one thousand oscillations per second
• kilovolt is one thousand volts
• kilobyte is roughly one thousand bytes of storage (used because 210, or 1024, is the power of two closest to 1000 bytes: it is easily close enough to one thousand, or one kilo-, for describing computer storage in general terms).
