# Convert 5 mu to ns

In this article I will show you how to convert 5 microseconds into nanoseconds. Throughout the explanation below I might also call it 5 mu to ns. They are the same thing!

## How to Convert Microseconds to Nanoseconds

A microsecond is greater than a nanosecond. I know that a mu is greater than a ns because of something called conversion factors.

Put very simply, a conversion factor is a number that can be used to change one set of units to another, by multiplying or dividing it. So when we need to convert 5 microseconds into nanoseconds, we use a conversion factor to get the answer.

The conversion factor for mu to ns is:

1 mu = 1000 ns

Now that we know what the conversion factor is, we can easily calculate the conversion of 5 mu to ns by multiplying `1000` by the number of microseconds we have, which is 5.

5 x 1000 = 5000 ns

So, the answer to the question "what is 5 microseconds in nanoseconds?" is 5000 ns.

## Best Conversion Unit for 5 mu

Sometimes when you work with conversions from one unit to another, the numbers can get a little confusing. Especially when dealing with really large numbers.

I've also calculated what the best unit of measurement is for 5 mu.

To determine which unit is best, I decided to define that as being the unit of measurement which is as low as possible, without going below 1. Smaller numbers are more easily understood and can make it easier for you to understand the measurement.

The best unit of measurement I have found for 5 mu is microseconds and the amount is 5 mu.
