How to Convert Nanovolts to Volts

To convert a nanovolt measurement to a volt measurement, multiply the voltage by the conversion ratio. One nanovolt is equal to 1.0E-9 volts, so use this simple formula to convert:

volts = nanovolts × 1.0E-9

The voltage in volts is equal to the nanovolts multiplied by 1.0E-9.

For example, here's how to convert 5 nanovolts to volts using the formula above.
5 nV = (5 × 1.0E-9) = 5.0E-9 V

Nanovolts and volts are both units used to measure voltage. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.


One nanovolt is equal to 1/1,000,000,000 of a volt, which is the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The nanovolt is a multiple of the volt, which is the SI derived unit for voltage. In the metric system, "nano" is the prefix for 10-9. Nanovolts can be abbreviated as nV, for example 1 nanovolt can be written as 1 nV.


Voltage is a measurement of electromotive force and the electrical potential difference between two points of a conductor. One volt is equal to the potential difference that would move one ampere of current against one ohm of resistance.

The volt is the SI derived unit for voltage in the metric system. Volts can be abbreviated as V, for example 1 volt can be written as 1 V.

Ohm's Law states the current between two points on a conductor is proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the resistance. Using Ohm's Law, it's possible to express the potential difference in volts as an expression using current and resistance.

VV = IA × R

The potential difference in volts is equal to the current in amperes times the resistance in ohms.
