## How to Convert Nanofarads to Millifarads

To convert a measurement in nanofarads to a measurement in millifarads, divide the capacitance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000 nanofarads/millifarad.

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

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

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

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

## What Is a Nanofarad?

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.

## What Is a Millifarad?

The millifarad is a multiple of the farad, which is the SI derived unit for capacitance. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for thousandths, or 10-3. Millifarads can be abbreviated as mF; for example, 1 millifarad can be written as 1 mF.
