How to Convert Abfarads to Picofarads

To convert an abfarad measurement to a picofarad measurement, multiply the capacitance by the conversion ratio.

Since one abfarad is equal to 1.0E+21 picofarads, you can use this simple formula to convert:

picofarads = abfarads × 1.0E+21

The capacitance in picofarads is equal to the abfarads multiplied by 1.0E+21.

For example, here's how to convert 5 abfarads to picofarads using the formula above.
5 abF = (5 × 1.0E+21) = 5.0E+21 pF

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


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 picofarad is 1/1,000,000,000,000 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 picofarad is a multiple of the farad, which is the SI derived unit for capacitance. In the metric system, "pico" is the prefix for 10-12. Picofarads can be abbreviated as pF; for example, 1 picofarad can be written as 1 pF.
