How to Convert Microfarads to Abfarads

To convert a microfarad measurement to an abfarad measurement, divide the capacitance by the conversion ratio.

Since one abfarad is equal to 1.0E+15 microfarads, you can use this simple formula to convert:

abfarads = microfarads ÷ 1.0E+15

The capacitance in abfarads is equal to the microfarads divided by 1.0E+15.

For example, here's how to convert 5.0E+14 microfarads to abfarads using the formula above.
5.0E+14 μF = (5.0E+14 ÷ 1.0E+15) = 0.5 abF

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


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.


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. An 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.
