Capacitance

Characteristic

abfarad

Notes

Symbol

aF

Other Names

emu-of-capacitance, abF

Metric (SI) Equivalent

1 gigafarad

This equivalent and the others below are exact.

Other Metric (SI) Equivalents with More Basic Units

1 gigacoulomb / volt

1×109 second4 amperes2 / kilogram meter2

Metric (SI) Dimensions

length-2 × mass-1 × time4 × electric-current2

These are the dimensions of the "capacitance" quantity in SI units. There are other unit systems used in electromagnetics that may assign different dimensions.
