We theoretically study a driven nanomechanical resonator capacitively coupled to a superconducting microwave cavity and present a feasible way to measure the coupling strength between them in terms of the coupling-induced normal-mode splitting. The probe spectrum exhibits two sharp sideband peaks exactly located at the resonance frequency of the nanomechanical resonator, which provides us an exact way to determine the resonance frequency of the nanomechanical resonator. Our results may have a variety of potential applications such as quantum transducer and quantum information processing.
