## How to Convert Picofarads to Microfarads

To convert a measurement in picofarads to a measurement in microfarads, divide 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:

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

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

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

## 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.

## 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.
