How to Convert Farads to Picofarads

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

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

picofarads = farads × 1,000,000,000,000

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

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

How Many Picofarads Are in a Farad?

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

1 F = 1,000,000,000,000 pF

Farads and picofarads 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 Picofarad?

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.
