TimeUnit toNanos() method in Java with Examples

  • Last Updated : 17 Feb, 2021

The toNanos() method of TimeUnit Class is used to get the time represented by the TimeUnit object, as the number of NanoSeconds, since midnight UTC on the 1st January 1970.
Syntax: 
 

public long toNanos(long duration)

Parameters: This method accepts a mandatory parameter duration which is the duration in milliSeconds.
Return Value: This method returns the converted duration as NanoSeconds.
Below program illustrate the implementation of TimeUnit toNanos() method:
Program 1:
 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// toNanos() method of TimeUnit Class
 
import java.util.concurrent.*;
import java.util.Date;
 
class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Get current time in milliseconds
        long timeInMilliSec = new Date().getTime();
 
        // Create a TimeUnit object
        TimeUnit time = TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS;
 
        // Convert milliseconds to NanoSeconds
        // using toNanos() method
        System.out.println("Time " + timeInMilliSec
                           + " milliSeconds in NanoSeconds = "
                           + time.toNanos(timeInMilliSec));
    }
}
Output: 
Time 1539585501608 milliSeconds in NanoSeconds = 1539585501608000000

 

Program 2:
 

Java




// Java program to demonstrate
// toNanos() method of TimeUnit Class
 
import java.util.concurrent.*;
import java.util.Calendar;
 
class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Get current time in milliseconds
        long timeInMilliSec = Calendar
                                  .getInstance()
                                  .getTimeInMillis();
 
        // Create a TimeUnit object
        TimeUnit time = TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS;
 
        // Convert milliseconds to NanoSeconds
        // using toNanos() method
        System.out.println("Time " + timeInMilliSec
                           + " milliSeconds in NanoSeconds = "
                           + time.toNanos(timeInMilliSec));
    }
}
Output: 
Time 1539585503771 milliSeconds in NanoSeconds = 1539585503771000000
