How to Convert Nanofarads to Picofarads

To convert a nanofarad measurement to a picofarad measurement, multiply the capacitance by the conversion ratio. One nanofarad is equal to 1,000 picofarads, so use this simple formula to convert:

picofarads = nanofarads × 1,000

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

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

Nanofarads and picofarads 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.

Picofarads

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.
