## How to Convert Henries to Gigahenries

To convert a henry measurement to a gigahenry measurement, divide the electrical inductance by the conversion ratio. One gigahenry is equal to 1,000,000,000 henries, so use this simple formula to convert:

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

**For example,**here's how to convert 5,000,000,000 henries to gigahenries using the formula above.

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

## Henries

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]}

## Gigahenries

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 10^{9}. Gigahenries can be abbreviated as *GH*, for example 1 gigahenry can be written as 1 GH.
