Enter the capacitance in nanofarads below to get the value converted to microfarads.

1 nF = 0.001 μF

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

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

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

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 billionths, or 10-9. Nanofarads can be abbreviated as nF; for example, 1 nanofarad can be written as 1 nF.

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 millionths, or 10-6. Microfarads can be abbreviated as μF; for example, 1 microfarad can be written as 1 μF.
