Express the units of capacitance


The unit of capacitance in the ms system is the farad, so named in honor of Michael Faraday. A farad is the capacitance of a capacitor which acquires a potential difference of one volt when it receives a charge of one coulomb. The farad is so large a unit that it would taken a capacitor of tremendous proportions to have a capacitance of 1 farad; hence, the microfarad (μF, one millionth of farad) is the unit most frequently used. In some cases the picofarad (pF)is a convenient unit  (1 pF = 10-12) F).
