|+||Capacitor electron storing ability (the capacitance) is measured in farads (F). One farad is actually a huge number of electrons (6,280,000,000,000,000,000 electrons to be exact), so we usually rate capacitors in microfarads (uF) and picofarads (pF). One uF is equal to 0.000,001F and one pF is equal to 0.000,000,000,001F.|
