How to Convert Nanoseconds to Centuries

To convert a measurement in nanoseconds to a measurement in centuries, divide the time by the following conversion ratio: 3.1557E+18 nanoseconds/century.

Since one century is equal to 3.1557E+18 nanoseconds, you can use this simple formula to convert:

centuries = nanoseconds ÷ 3.1557E+18

The time in centuries is equal to the time in nanoseconds divided by 3.1557E+18.

For example, here's how to convert 5.0E+18 nanoseconds to centuries using the formula above.
centuries = (5.0E+18 ns ÷ 3.1557E+18) = 1.584437 c

Nanoseconds and centuries are both units used to measure time. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
