What is the symbol uF?

## What is the symbol uF?

Know the units of measurement. 1 µF, uF, or mF = 1 microfarad = 10-6 farads. (Careful — in other contexts, mF is the official abbreviation for millifarads, or 10-3 farads.) 1 nF = 1 nanofarad = 10-9 farads.

## How do you represent farad?

The farad (symbolized F) is the standard unit of capacitance in the International System of Units (SI).

What is a farad in physics?

farad, unit of electrical capacitance (ability to hold an electric charge), in the metre–kilogram–second system of physical units, named in honour of the English scientist Michael Faraday. The capacitance of a capacitor is one farad when one coulomb of electricity changes the potential between the plates by one volt.

### What is uF unit?

Units of Capacitance Capacitance is usually measured in microfarads (abbreviated uF or mfd) or picofarads (pF). The microfarad is one millionth of a farad (10-6 F), and the picofarad is one-millionth of a microfarad (10-12 F).

A microfarad (μF, uF) is a decimal fraction of a farad, the SI-derived unit of capacitance. A capacitor of one farad produces a potential difference of one volt between its plates when it stores an electric charge of one coulomb. Microfarad is commonly used in electronics and electrical engineering.

The statfarad (abbreviated statF) is the unit of capacitance in the cgs (centimeter/gram/second) or small-unit metric system . It is equivalent to 1.1126 x 10 -12 farads. The farad (F) is the standard unit of capacitance in the International System of Units ( SI ).
