How to Convert Microfarads to Picofarads

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

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

picofarads = microfarads × 1,000,000

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

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

How Many Picofarads Are in a Microfarad?

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

1 μF = 1,000,000 pF

Microfarads and picofarads 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 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.
