Lets say the class names of your two forms were Form1 and Form2.  on the click event of the button, you could do

Form2 newForm = new Form2();
newForm.Show();

You may want to define the second form as a member for the first so that you can have a reference to it.  make the class a private member variable in your class:

private Form2 newForm;

and then from your click event add this instead:
newForm = new Form2()
newForm.Show();
