Coulombs (C) and nanocoulombs (nC) are units of electric charge, which measure the amount of electric charge carried by a particle or object.

## Coulomb (C)

The coulomb is the SI (International System of Units) unit of electric charge. One coulomb is defined as the amount of electric charge that flows through a conductor when a current of one ampere (1 A) flows for one second (1 s). In equation form, 1 coulomb = 1 ampere × 1 second.

## Nanocoulomb (nC)

The prefix “nano” means one billionth (1/1,000,000,000) of a unit. Therefore, a nanocoulomb is equal to one billionth of a coulomb. It’s often used to describe small amounts of electric charge, especially in situations where larger units like coulombs are not practical due to the small scale of the charge involved.

### How to convert Coulombs to nC

1C = 10^{9}nC

or

1nC = 10^{-9}C

#### Coulombs to nC conversion formula

Q_{(nC)} = Q_{(C)} × 10^{9}

Example – Convert 3 coulombs to nanocoulombs

Ans. Q_{(nC)} = 3C × 10^{9} = 3 x 10^{9}nC

## FAQs on Coulombs to nC conversion

### How many coulombs is 1 nC?

1 nanocoulomb (nC) is equal to 1 × 10^-9 coulombs (C).

### What is 1 nC?

1 nanocoulomb (nC) is a unit of electric charge, specifically one billionth of a coulomb (C).

### What is the unit of charge nC?
