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

1 mF = 1,000,000,000 pF

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

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

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

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

1 mF = 1,000,000,000 pF

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 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.
