How to Convert Nanofarads to Microfarads

To convert a nanofarad measurement to a microfarad measurement, multiply the capacitance by the conversion ratio. One nanofarad is equal to 0.001 microfarads, so use this simple formula to convert:

microfarads = nanofarads × 0.001

The capacitance in microfarads is equal to the nanofarads multiplied by 0.001.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanofarads to microfarads using the formula above.
5 nF = (5 × 0.001) = 0.005 μF

Nanofarads and microfarads 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.

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.
