How to Convert Picofarads to Nanofarads

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

nanofarads = picofarads ÷ 1,000

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

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

Picofarads and nanofarads are both units used to measure capacitance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

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.

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.
