How to Convert Farads to Abfarads

To convert a farad measurement to a abfarad measurement, multiply the capacitance by the conversion ratio. One farad is equal to 1.0E-9 abfarads, so use this simple formula to convert:

abfarads = farads × 1.0E-9

The capacitance in abfarads is equal to the farads multiplied by 1.0E-9.

For example, here's how to convert 5 farads to abfarads using the formula above.
5 F = (5 × 1.0E-9) = 5.0E-9 abF

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


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. 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.


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. A 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.
