## 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.
henries = (5 GH × 1,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000 H

### 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

## 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 109. 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.

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.
