## How to Convert Nanofarads to Picofarads

To convert a measurement in nanofarads to a measurement in picofarads, multiply the capacitance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000 picofarads/nanofarad.

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

The capacitance in picofarads is equal to the capacitance in nanofarads multiplied by 1,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanofarads to picofarads using the formula above.
picofarads = (5 nF × 1,000) = 5,000 pF

### How Many Picofarads Are in a Nanofarad?

There are 1,000 picofarads in a nanofarad, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 nF = 1,000 pF

Nanofarads and picofarads 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 Picofarad?

The picofarad is 1/1,000,000,000,000 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 picofarad is a multiple of the farad, which is the SI derived unit for capacitance. In the metric system, "pico" is the prefix for 10-12. Picofarads can be abbreviated as pF; for example, 1 picofarad can be written as 1 pF.
