## How to Convert Gigahenries to Henries

To convert a measurement in gigahenries to a measurement in henries, multiply the electrical inductance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000,000 henries/gigahenry.

Since one gigahenry is equal to 1,000,000,000 henries, you can use this simple formula to convert:

henries = gigahenries × 1,000,000,000

The electrical inductance in henries is equal to the electrical inductance in gigahenries multiplied by 1,000,000,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 gigahenries to henries using the formula above.

### How Many Henries Are in a Gigahenry?

There are **1,000,000,000** henries in a gigahenry, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 GH = 1,000,000,000 H

Gigahenries and henries are both units used to measure electrical inductance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## What Is a Gigahenry?

One gigahenry is equal to 1,000,000,000 henries, which are the inductance of a conductor with one volt of electromotive force when the current is increased by one ampere per second.

The gigahenry is a multiple of the henry, which is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance. In the metric system, "giga" is the prefix for billions, or 10^{9}. Gigahenries can be abbreviated as *GH*; for example, 1 gigahenry can be written as 1 GH.

## What Is a Henry?

One henry is equal to the inductance of a conductor in which there is one volt of electromotive force when the current through the conductor is increased by one ampere per second.^{[1]}

The henry is the SI derived unit for electrical inductance in the metric system. Henries can be abbreviated as *H*; for example, 1 henry can be written as 1 H.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology recommends using "henries" as the plural form of the unit,
however the usage of "henrys" is also common.^{[2]}
