Conversion from Millisecond (ms) to Nanosecond (ns) and vice versa

Updated on by Stefan Banse

Here you can convert the Time unit Millisecond into the unit Nanosecond and vice versa you can convert Nanosecond into Millisecond. By clicking the "Swap units" icon, you will always obtain the desired conversion in the calculation result, i.e., ms to ns or ns to ms. With the following calculator you can also calculate any other Time unit.

Info about "Millisecond"

The unit millisecond or thousandth of a second can be traced back to the basic unit second. Here, 1 millisecond corresponds to 0.001 seconds or 1 second corresponds to 1,000 milliseconds. The prefix "milli" in the term millisecond stands for one-thousandth of the base unit second.

This unit belongs to the International System of Units (SI).

For example, while an accuracy of a tenth of a second is sufficient for sprints in athletics to detect the difference between a few centimeters ahead, thousandths of a second in a car race in milliseconds are required to clearly determine the winner.

Info about "Nanosecond"

The unit “nanosecond” can be traced back to the basic unit second. Therefore, 1 nanosecond corresponds to 0.000000001 seconds or 1 second corresponds to 1,000,000,000 nanoseconds. The prefix "nano" in the term nanosecond stands for one-billionth of the basic unit second.

This unit belongs to the International System of Units (SI).

For example, light travels around 0.3 meters in a nanosecond.

Basis for conversion Millisecond (ms) to Nanosecond (ns)

The abbreviation for the "Time unit Millisecond" is ms. The abbreviation for the "Time unit Nanosecond" is ns.

Formula for the conversion of Millisecond (ms) to Nanosecond (ns)

The calculation from Millisecond to Nanosecond shall be made using the following conversion formula:
