How to Convert Farads to Millifarads

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

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

millifarads = farads × 1,000

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

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

How Many Millifarads Are in a Farad?

There are 1,000 millifarads in a farad, which is why we use this value in the formula above.

1 F = 1,000 mF

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

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.

What Is a Millifarad?

The millifarad is a multiple of the farad, which is the SI derived unit for capacitance. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for thousandths, or 10-3. Millifarads can be abbreviated as mF; for example, 1 millifarad can be written as 1 mF.
