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

The formula for converting seconds to nanoseconds is: ns = s × 1000000000. To calculate the second value in nanoseconds first substitute the second value into the preceding formula, and then perform the calculation. If we wanted to calculate 1 second in nanoseconds we follow these steps:

ns = s × 1000000000

n1 = s × 1000000000

ns = 1000000000

In other words, 1 second is equal to 1000000000 nanoseconds.

## Example Conversion

Let's take a look at an example. The step-by-step process to convert 3 seconds to nanoseconds is:

- Understand the conversion formula: ns = s × 1000000000
- Substitute the required value. In this case we substitute 3 for s so the formula becomes: n3 = s × 1000000000
- Calculate the result using the provided values. In our example the result is: 3 × 1000000000 = 3e+9 ns

In summary, 3 seconds is equal to 3e+9 nanoseconds.

## Converting nanoseconds to seconds

In order to convert the other way around i.e. nanoseconds to seconds, you would use the following formula: s = ns × 0.000000001. To convert nanoseconds to seconds first substitute the nanosecond value into the above formula, and then execute 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

Or in other words, 1 nanosecond is equal to 0.000000001 seconds.
