Enter the capacitance in abfarads below to get the value converted to nanofarads.

1 abF = 1.0E+18 nF
Hint: use a scientific notation calculator to convert E notation to decimal

Since one abfarad is equal to 1.0E+18 nanofarads, you can use this simple formula to convert:

The capacitance in nanofarads is equal to the capacitance in abfarads multiplied by 1.0E+18.

For example, here's how to convert 5 abfarads to nanofarads using the formula above.
nanofarads = (5 abF × 1.0E+18) = 5.0E+18 nF

There are 1.0E+18 nanofarads in an abfarad, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 abF = 1.0E+18 nF

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.

The nanofarad is 1/1,000,000,000 of a farad, which is the capacitance of a capacitor with a potential difference of one volt when it is charged by one coulomb of electricity.

The nanofarad is a multiple of the farad, which is the SI derived unit for capacitance. In the metric system, "nano" is the prefix for billionths, or 10-9. Nanofarads can be abbreviated as nF; for example, 1 nanofarad can be written as 1 nF.
