> Hi, It's the same as temporal frequency except that you have a wave oscillating in space. The cycle rate here is just the reciprocal of the spatial period. The higher (faster) the cycle rate, the shorter the spatial period between values that represent light and dark and therefore the higher the spatial frequency.

Thanks for your reply. Is it possible to explain it in a more simpler fashion?
