How to Convert Milliseconds to Nanoseconds

Calendars document the days in a month

To convert a millisecond measurement to a nanosecond measurement, multiply the time by the conversion ratio. One millisecond is equal to 1,000,000 nanoseconds, so use this simple formula to convert:

nanoseconds = milliseconds × 1,000,000

The time in nanoseconds is equal to the milliseconds multiplied by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 milliseconds to nanoseconds using the formula above.
5 ms = (5 × 1,000,000) = 5,000,000 ns

Milliseconds and nanoseconds are both units used to measure time. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

Milliseconds

The millisecond is a multiple of the second, which is the SI base unit for time. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for 10-3. Milliseconds can be abbreviated as ms, for example 1 millisecond can be written as 1 ms.

Nanoseconds

The nanosecond is a multiple of the second, which is the SI base unit for time. In the metric system, "nano" is the prefix for 10-9. Nanoseconds can be abbreviated as ns, for example 1 nanosecond can be written as 1 ns.
