Enter a value in nanofarads below to convert to another unit of capacitance.

## Results:

A nanofarad is a unit used to measure capacitance.

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 billionths, or 10-9. Nanofarads can be abbreviated as nF; for example, 1 nanofarad can be written as 1 nF.

## How Much Is a Nanofarad?

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.

To convert nanofarads to another unit of capacitance, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.[1]

You can find the conversion factors for nanofarads in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the capacitance measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

nanofarads × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
