Hash is the output of a hash function and, as it relates to Bitcoin, the Hash Rate is the speed at which a compute is completing an operation in the Bitcoin code. A higher hash rate is better when mining as it increases your opportunity of finding the next block and receiving the reward.
The hash rate measures how powerful a Bitcoin miner's machine is. Specifically, it measures the number of times a hash function can be computed per second.
As miners increased by number, the complexities of crypto calculations increased with it.
Hashrates being the variable, which is the speed at which the crypto puzzles are calculated and deliver income to the miner. The amount of profit for a miner dependent upon how much hashpower the miner has relative to the network.

Hash rate is a unit measured in hashes per second or [h/s].Hash Rate, also Hash Power, is the measuring unit that measures how much power Bitcoin network is consuming to be continuously functional. In the simplest terms, hash rate refers to the speed at which any mining device operates. Speed is important because cryptocurrency mining is really just a guessing game.

Here's a pretty good video on this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apdQsrwAEXE

Also, someone has posted a pretty detailed answer to this question here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=204141.0

Hope this helps!

Hash rate is the unit used in calculations in a machine, the rate in which data is being hashed in a given time by a computer.

A hash rate is the measure of miner’s performance. In other words, it is the hash function’s output or it is the speed at which a miner solves the Bitcoin code. In the year 2014, the performance of miner was measured in Billions of hashes/s.

The higher hash rate means increased opportunity for cryptocurrency mining and receiving block reward. The hash/s is the measure of the efficiency of the miner in W/Ghash/s. Hash/s is also measured in J/Ghash (Joules per 1 Billion hashes).

Hash per second represents SHA-256 algorithms that are used per second, known as hash rate. It is SI derived unit that is symbolized as h/s.

Bitcoin’s Hash Rate

For Bitcoin network calculations, the hash rate uses hash/s. As a mining pool or miner relies on the solved block, so the whole network’s hash rate is calculated as per the time in between blocks. However, the hash rate network’s accurate measure is not taken at given point in time, so the measurements done after long is considered as indicative.

In January 2015, the hash rate of the network was approximately 300 quadrillion hashes/s or 300 Phash/s.

How is Hash Rate measured?

Hash rate or Hash power is measured in h/s (hashes per second) and following are a few denominations that are used to refer to the hash rate.

Denominations of Hash Rate

• 1 KH/s = 1,000 (one thousand) hashes per second
• 1 MH/s = 1,000,000 (one million) hashes per second
• 1 GH/s = 1,000,000,000 (one billion) hashes per second
• 1 TH/s = 1,000,000,000,000 (one trillion) hashes per second
• 1 PH/s = 1,000,000,000,000,000 (one quadrillion) hashes per second
• 1 EH/s = 1,000,000,000,000,000,000 (one quintillion) hashes per second

A Few Common Hash Rate Conversions

• 1 MH/s = 1,000 kH/s
• 1 GH/s = 1,000 MH/s = 1,000,000 kH/s
• 1 TH/s = 1,000 GH/s = 1,000,000 MH/s = 1,000,000,000 kH/s


The relation between Miner’s Reward, Hash Rate, and Difficulty


- Hash rate, difficulty, and miner’s reward are related to each other in different ways. At the point of time, when the network of Bitcoin goes up, the hash rate will be more in order to mine blocks and miners can earn 12.5 BTC block reward and transaction fees too.

- When the difficulty of Bitcoin network increase owing to the more miners, the hash rate or hash power also increases (more computational power will be required to successfully solve a cryptographic problem).

- This correlation in between these are forced into Bitcoin to keep the average Bitcoin block time of 10 minutes.

Hashrate - A measure of the computing power of devices used to exploit virtual coins (peaches). At the time of digging bitcoin, many problems are solved, only then can earn virtual currency. Source: "Hashrate"

Hash rate, or hash power as some call it, is the unit of measurement for the amount of computing power the Bitcoin network is consuming in order to be continuously operational.

The hash rate measure is also continuously calculated in the average time frame of 10 minutes.

(10 minutes is the amount of time that it takes a block of transactions to be mined and added to the blockchain ledger for permanent record keeping).
