Write your answer...

What fraction of a second is 1 picosecond?

0.000 000 000 001 of a second.

A picosecond is one trillionth of a second. (10^-12). Or one thousandth of a nanosecond.

10-12 of a second.or one trillionth, or 0.000 000 000 001 seconds

picosecond

A picosecond is much less than a second. A trillion (1012) picoseconds make up one second.

' picosecond ' = 10-12 second

A picosecond is one-trillionth of a second. It is also one-thousandth of a nanosecond. As such there are 0.000000000001 (or 10-12) seconds in a picosecond.

a picosecond, 1 second x 10^-12

on picosecond

Too short! But a nanosecond is one billionth of a second. --------------------------- Writing one-millionth as an exponent, we have: 10-6 x 10-6 = 10-12 which is one-trillionth. Such a fraction of a second would be a "picosecond." A nanosecond, or one-billionth of a second, is 10-9 seconds.

it is Millisecond(One thousandth of a second) Microsecond(One millionth of a second) Nanosecond(One billionth of a second) Picosecond(One trillionth of a second)

Light travels 1/1000 of a foot in a picosecond.

picosecond

A picosecond is 10−12 of a second. That is one trillionth, or one millionth of one millionth of a second, or 0.000 000 000 001 seconds. A picosecond is to one second as one second is to 31,700 years.The name is formed by the SI prefix pico and the SI unit second. It is abbreviated as ps.One picosecond is equal to 1000 femtoseconds, or 1/1000 nanosecond. Because the next SI unit is 1000 times larger, measurements of 10−11 and 10−10 second are typically expressed as tens or hundreds of picoseconds. Some notable measurements in this range include

One billion. 1 millisecond = 1/1000th of a second. 1 microsecond = 1/1,000,000 of a second. 1 nanosecond = 1,000,000,000 of a second. 1 picosecond = 1,000,000,000,000. 1000 x 1,000,000,000 = 1 trillion. 1 picosecond is a trillionth of a second.

* a millisecond or 1000th of a second * a nanosecond or a billionth of a second * a picosecond or a trillionth of a second

A picosecond would be one trillionth of a second. Pico is commonly used in units of measurement for electricity, for example a picofarad is one trillionth of a farad.

1012 (a million million).

Year, Decade, Century, Millennium A picosecond is one trillionth (10-12) of a second, which is one thousandth of a nanosecond and one millionth of a microsecond.

The 'Second'Other terms are used if the units to be measured or smaller or larger than a second but they are all variations of a second (such as microsecod, picosecond, even minutes or hours are counted one second at a time.

A Picosecond is 1/1012 one tenth of a second to the 12th power). Which is the next smallest unit of time from the Nanosecond 1/109 (one tenth of a second to the 9th power), and next larger to the Femtosecond 1/1015 (one tenth of a second to the 15th power)

A nanosecond is longer than a picosecond.

It is one billionths of a second.
