How to Convert Nanovolts to Volts

To convert a measurement in nanovolts to a measurement in volts, divide the voltage by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000,000 nanovolts/volt.

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

volts = nanovolts ÷ 1,000,000,000

The voltage in volts is equal to the voltage in nanovolts divided by 1,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000,000 nanovolts to volts using the formula above.
volts = (5,000,000,000 nV ÷ 1,000,000,000) = 5 V

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

What Is a Nanovolt?

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 billionths, or 10-9. Nanovolts can be abbreviated as nV; for example, 1 nanovolt can be written as 1 nV.

What Is a Volt?

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.

Voltage and Ohm's Law

Voltage is a measurement of electromotive force and the electrical potential difference between two points of a conductor.[1]

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.
