How to Convert Farads to Nanofarads

To convert a farad measurement to a nanofarad measurement, multiply the capacitance by the conversion ratio. One farad is equal to 1,000,000,000 nanofarads, so use this simple formula to convert:

nanofarads = farads × 1,000,000,000

The capacitance in nanofarads is equal to the farads multiplied by 1,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 farads to nanofarads using the formula above.
5 F = (5 × 1,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000 nF

Farads and nanofarads are both units used to measure capacitance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Farads

The farad is defined as the capacitance of a capacitor that has a potential difference of one volt when charged by one coulomb of electricity.[1] The farad is considered to be a very large capacitance value, and multiples of the farad are commonly used to measure capacitance in practical applications, though the farad is still used in some applications.

The farad is the SI derived unit for capacitance in the metric system. Farads can be abbreviated as F; for example, 1 farad can be written as 1 F.

Nanofarads

The nanofarad is 1/1,000,000,000 of a farad, which is the capacitance of a capacitor with a potential difference of one volt when it is charged by one coulomb of electricity.

The nanofarad is a multiple of the farad, which is the SI derived unit for capacitance. In the metric system, "nano" is the prefix for 10-9. Nanofarads can be abbreviated as nF; for example, 1 nanofarad can be written as 1 nF.
