Microfarads to Farads Conversion
Enter the capacitance in microfarads below to get the value converted to farads.
How to Convert Microfarads to Farads
To convert a microfarad measurement to a farad measurement, divide the capacitance by the conversion ratio. One farad is equal to 1,000,000 microfarads, so use this simple formula to convert:
The capacitance in farads is equal to the microfarads divided by 1,000,000.
Microfarads and farads are both units used to measure capacitance. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
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 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.
