Enter the capacitance in millifarads below to get the value converted to farads.

1 mF = 0.001 F

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

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

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

The millifarad is a multiple of the farad, which is the SI derived unit for capacitance. In the metric system, "milli" is the prefix for thousandths, or 10-3. Millifarads can be abbreviated as mF; for example, 1 millifarad can be written as 1 mF.

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.
