How to convert microseconds to nanoseconds (µs to ns)
The formula for converting microseconds to nanoseconds is: ns = µs × 1000. To calculate the microsecond value in nanoseconds first substitute the microsecond value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 microsecond in nanoseconds we follow these steps:
ns = µs × 1000
ns = 1 × 1000
ns = 1000
In other words, 1 microsecond is equal to 1000 nanoseconds.
Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 6 microseconds to nanoseconds is:
- Understand the conversion formula: ns = µs × 1000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 6 for µs so the formula becomes: ns = 6 × 1000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 6 × 1000 = 6000 ns
In summary, 6 microseconds is equal to 6000 nanoseconds.
Converting nanoseconds to microseconds
In order to convert the other way around i.e. nanoseconds to microseconds, you would use the following formula: µs = ns × 0.001. To convert nanoseconds to microseconds first substitute the nanosecond value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 nanosecond in microseconds we follow these steps:
µs = ns × 0.001
µs = 1 × 0.001
µs = 0.001
Or in other words, 1 nanosecond is equal to 0.001 microseconds.
