## How to Convert Microfarads to Farads

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

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

The capacitance in farads is equal to the capacitance in microfarads divided by 1,000,000.

For example, here's how to convert 5,000,000 microfarads to farads using the formula above.
farads = (5,000,000 μF ÷ 1,000,000) = 5 F

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

## What Is a Microfarad?

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 millionths, or 10-6. Microfarads can be abbreviated as μF; for example, 1 microfarad can be written as 1 μF.

## 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.
