Enter a value in picofarads below to convert to another unit of capacitance.

## Results:

A picofarad is a unit used to measure capacitance.

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.

## How Much 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.

To convert picofarads to another unit of capacitance, you need to multiply the value by a conversion factor. A conversion factor is a numerical value used to change the units of a measurement without changing the value.[1]

You can find the conversion factors for picofarads in the conversion table below.

Then, multiply the capacitance measurement by the conversion factor to find the equivalent value in the desired unit of measurement.

picofarads × conversion factor = result

You can also use a calculator, such as one of the converters below, for the conversion.
