It is documented that 'one' of the units of the Fourier Transform [of $x(t)$ volt] is volt per Hz. That is $X(\omega)$ components will have units of volt per Hz, where $\omega$ is the angular frequency (along the $x$-axis).
For example, the Fourier Transform of $\cos(\omega_0 t)$ volt has two components - one at $\omega = \omega_0$ and one at $\omega = -\omega_0$, each assigned a 'value' of $\pi$. So it is assumed that the values are '$\pi$ volt per Hz'.
Now, when the plot is adjusted to become a function of cyclic frequency $f$ (in Hz), which means plotting $X(f)$ versus $f$, then the Fourier Transform components of $\cos( 2\pi f_0 t)$ become '1/2 or 0.5' instead of '$\pi$'.
My question is --- why isn't the '$\pi$ volt per hz' preserved when translating between $X(\omega)$ and $X(f)$?
According to tables showing Fourier Transform pairs, the Fourier Transform of $\cos( 2\pi f_0 t)$ volt has two components -- each with a value of '1/2 or 0.5'. For these values, does anyone know what are their units? I had assumed that the values for each component would have been 'preserved' (to be $\pi$ volt per Hz), regardless of whether we do the plot as a function of '$\omega_0$' rad/s or a function of '$f_0$' Hz. Thanks all.
