## How to Convert Seconds to Nanoseconds

To convert a second measurement to a nanosecond measurement, multiply the time by the conversion ratio. One second is equal to 1,000,000,000 nanoseconds, so use this simple formula to convert:

The time in nanoseconds is equal to the seconds multiplied by 1,000,000,000.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 seconds to nanoseconds using the formula above.

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

## Seconds

The second has historically been defined as 1/60 of a minute or 1/86,400 of a day. The SI defines the second as the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium 133 atom.

The second is the SI base unit for time in the metric system. Seconds can be abbreviated as *sec*, for example 1 second can be written as 1 sec.

## Nanoseconds

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 10^{-9}. Nanoseconds can be abbreviated as *ns*, for example 1 nanosecond can be written as 1 ns.
