How to Convert Microfarads to Nanofarads

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

nanofarads = microfarads × 1,000

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

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

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

Microfarads

The microfarad is 1/1,000,000 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 microfarad is a multiple of the farad, which is the SI derived unit for capacitance. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Microfarads can be abbreviated as μF, for example 1 microfarad can be written as 1 μF.

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.
