Farad is the unit of capacitance. It is named after Michael Faraday.

The farad measures how much electric charge is accumulated on the capacitor.

1 farad is the capacitance of a capacitor that has charge of 1 coulomb when applied voltage drop of 1 volt.

1F = 1C / 1V

name symbol conversion example

The capacitance C in farad (F) is equal to the capacitance C in picofarad (pF) times 10-12:

C(F) = C(pF) × 10-12

Example - convert 30pF to farad:

C(F) = 30 pF × 10-12 = 30×10-12 F

The capacitance C in farad (F) is equal to the capacitance C in nanofarad (nF) times 10-9:

C(F) = C(nF) × 10-9

Example - convert 5nF to farad:

C(F) = 5 nF × 10-9 = 5×10-9 F

The capacitance C in farad (F) is equal to the capacitance C in microfarad (μF) times 10-6:

C(F) = C(μF) × 10-6

Example - convert 30μF to farad:

C(F) = 30 μF × 10-6 = 30×10-6 F = 0.00003 F
