## How to Convert Nanoseconds to Years

To convert a measurement in nanoseconds to a measurement in years, divide the time by the following conversion ratio: 3.1557E+16 nanoseconds/year.

Since one year is equal to 3.1557E+16 nanoseconds, you can use this simple formula to convert:

years = nanoseconds ÷ 3.1557E+16

The time in years is equal to the time in nanoseconds divided by 3.1557E+16.

For example, here's how to convert 5.0E+16 nanoseconds to years using the formula above.
years = (5.0E+16 ns ÷ 3.1557E+16) = 1.584437 yr

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

## What Is a Nanosecond?

One nanosecond is equal to 1/1,000,000,000 (one-billionth) of a second.

The nanosecond is a multiple of the second, which is the SI base unit for time. In the metric system, "nano" is the prefix for billionths, or 10-9. Nanoseconds can be abbreviated as ns; for example, 1 nanosecond can be written as 1 ns.

## What Is a Year?

One year is the time it takes for the Earth to complete its orbit around the Sun. There are 365 days in a year, with the exception of the leap year when there are 366.

We have leap years because the Earth actually takes 365.2425 days to revolve around the sun, but we round to 365 for convenience. However, since we miss a quarter of a day per revolution around the sun, this means that we add an extra day to the year once every 4 years, hence the leap year.

Years can be abbreviated as yr (plural yrs), and are also sometimes abbreviated as y. For example, 1 year can be written as 1 yr or 1 y, and 2 years can be written as 2 yrs.
