# Convert 50 var to gvar

So you want to convert 50 volt-amperes reactive into gigavolt-amperes reactive? If you're in a rush and just need the answer, the calculator below is all you need. The answer is 5.0E-8 gigavolt-amperes reactive.

## How to convert volt-amperes reactive to gigavolt-amperes reactive

We all use different units of measurement every day. Whether you're in a foreign country and need to convert the local imperial units to metric, or you're baking a cake and need to convert to a unit you are more familiar with.

Luckily, converting most units is very, very simple. In this case, all you need to know is that 1 var is equal to 1.0E-9 gvar.

Once you know what 1 var is in gigavolt-amperes reactive, you can simply multiply 1.0E-9 by the total volt-amperes reactive you want to calculate.

So for our example here we have 50 volt-amperes reactive. So all we do is multiply 50 by 1.0E-9:

50 x 1.0E-9 = 5.0E-8

## What is the best conversion unit for 50 var?

As an added little bonus conversion for you, we can also calculate the best unit of measurement for 50 var.

What is the "best" unit of measurement? To keep it simple, let's say that the best unit of measure is the one that is the lowest possible without going below 1. The reason for this is that the lowest number generally makes it easier to understand the measurement.

For 50 var the best unit of measurement is volt-amperes reactive, and the amount is 50 var.
