How to Convert Nanofarads to Farads

To convert a nanofarad measurement to a farad measurement, multiply the capacitance by the conversion ratio. One nanofarad is equal to 1.0E-9 farads, so use this simple formula to convert:

farads = nanofarads × 1.0E-9

The capacitance in farads is equal to the nanofarads multiplied by 1.0E-9.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanofarads to farads using the formula above.
5 nF = (5 × 1.0E-9) = 5.0E-9 F

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

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.

Farads

The farad is defined as the capacitance of a capacitor that has a potential difference of one volt when charged by one coulomb of electricity. The farad is considered to be a very large capacitance value, and multiples of the farad are commonly used to measure capacitance in practical applications, though the farad is still used in some applications.

The farad is the SI derived unit for capacitance in the metric system. Farads can be abbreviated as F, for example 1 farad can be written as 1 F.
