How to Convert Abfarads to Farads

To convert a measurement in abfarads to a measurement in farads, multiply the capacitance by the following conversion ratio: 1,000,000,000 farads/abfarad.

Since one abfarad is equal to 1,000,000,000 farads, you can use this simple formula to convert:

farads = abfarads × 1,000,000,000

The capacitance in farads is equal to the capacitance in abfarads multiplied by 1,000,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5 abfarads to farads using the formula above.
farads = (5 abF × 1,000,000,000) = 5,000,000,000 F

How Many Farads Are in an Abfarad?

There are 1,000,000,000 farads in an abfarad, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 abF = 1,000,000,000 F

Abfarads and farads are both units used to measure capacitance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

What Is an Abfarad?

The abfarad is capacitance of a capacitor that has a potential difference of one abvolt when charged with one abcoulomb of electricity. Although the abfarad contains the term "farad," it is not a multiple of the farad in the SI, and is actually equal to one billion farads, or one gigafarad. The abfarad is an obsolete unit with rare practical uses.

The abfarad is a centimeter-gram-second (CGS) electromagnetic unit of capacitance. An abfarad is sometimes also referred to as an EMU. Abfarads can be abbreviated as abF; for example, 1 abfarad can be written as 1 abF.

What Is a Farad?

The farad is defined as the capacitance of a capacitor that has a potential difference of one volt when charged by one coulomb of electricity.[1] The farad is considered to be a very large capacitance value, and multiples of the farad are commonly used to measure capacitance in practical applications, though the farad is still used in some applications.

The farad is the SI derived unit for capacitance in the metric system. Farads can be abbreviated as F; for example, 1 farad can be written as 1 F.
