How to Convert Farads to Microfarads

To convert a farad measurement to a microfarad measurement, multiply the capacitance by the conversion ratio. One farad is equal to 1,000,000 microfarads, so use this simple formula to convert:

microfarads = farads × 1,000,000

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

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

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

Farads

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.

Microfarads

The microfarad is 1/1,000,000 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 microfarad is a multiple of the farad, which is the SI derived unit for capacitance. In the metric system, "micro" is the prefix for 10-6. Microfarads can be abbreviated as μF, for example 1 microfarad can be written as 1 μF.
