## How to convert nanoseconds to seconds (ns to s)

The formula for converting nanoseconds to seconds is: s = ns × 0.000000001. To calculate the nanosecond value in seconds first substitute the nanosecond value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 nanosecond in seconds we follow these steps:

s = ns × 0.000000001

s = 1 × 0.000000001

s = 0.000000001

In other words, 1 nanosecond is equal to 0.000000001 seconds.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 6 nanoseconds to seconds is:

- Understand the conversion formula: s = ns × 0.000000001
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 6 for ns so the formula becomes: s = 6 × 0.000000001
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 6 × 0.000000001 = 0.000000006 s

In summary, 6 nanoseconds is equal to 0.000000006 seconds.

## Converting seconds to nanoseconds

In order to convert the other way around i.e. seconds to nanoseconds, you would use the following formula: ns = s × 1000000000. To convert seconds to nanoseconds first substitute the second value into the above formula, and then execute the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 second in nanoseconds we follow these steps:

ns = s × 1000000000

n1 = s × 1000000000

ns = 1000000000

Or in other words, 1 second is equal to 1000000000 nanoseconds.
