Seconds to Picoseconds

Easily convert seconds to picoseconds with this simple online converter tool


Seconds are the base unit of time in the International System of Units (SI). One second is defined as the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of radiation corresponding to the transition between two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium-133 atom.


Picoseconds are a much smaller unit of time. One picosecond is equal to one trillionth (10^-12) of a second. It’s commonly used in fields such as physics, chemistry, and electronics to measure extremely short time intervals, such as the time it takes for light to travel a few millimeters or the time for electrons to move within electronic circuits.
