## How to Convert Nanocoulombs to Coulombs

To convert a measurement in nanocoulombs to a measurement in coulombs, divide the electric charge by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000,000 nanocoulombs/coulomb.

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

coulombs = nanocoulombs ÷ 1,000,000,000

The electric charge in coulombs is equal to the electric charge in nanocoulombs divided by 1,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000,000 nanocoulombs to coulombs using the formula above.
coulombs = (5,000,000,000 nC ÷ 1,000,000,000) = 5 C

## What Is a Nanocoulomb?

The nanocoulomb is 1/1,000,000,000 of a coulomb, which is the electric charge equal to one ampere of current over one second.

The nanocoulomb is a multiple of the coulomb, which is the SI derived unit for electric charge. In the metric system, "nano" is the prefix for billionths, or 10-9. Nanocoulombs can be abbreviated as nC; for example, 1 nanocoulomb can be written as 1 nC.

## What Is a Coulomb?

One coulomb is the electric charge equal to one ampere of current over one second.

The coulomb can be expressed as QC = IA × ts

The charge in coulombs is equal to the current in amperes times the time in seconds.

The coulomb is the SI derived unit for electric charge in the metric system. Coulombs can be abbreviated as C; for example, 1 coulomb can be written as 1 C.
