Dingfeng Capacitor---How to Convert The Unit of Capacitance
Capacitance is the electrical property of a capacitor and is the measure of a capacitors ability to store an electrical charge onto its two plates with the unit of capacitance being the Farad (abbreviated to F) named after the British physicist Michael Faraday.

Capacitance is defined as being that a capacitor has the capacitance of One Farad when a charge of One Coulomb is stored on the plates by a voltage of One volt. Note that capacitance, C is always positive in value and has no negative units. However, the Farad is a very large unit of measurement to use on its own so sub-multiples of the Farad are generally used such as micro-farads, nano-farads and pico-farads, for example.

Standard Units of Capacitance

Microfarad  (μF)   1μF = 1/1,000,000 = 0.000001 = 10-6 F
Nanofarad  (nF)   1nF = 1/1,000,000,000 = 0.000000001 = 10-9 F
Picofarad  (pF)   1pF = 1/1,000,000,000,000 = 0.000000000001 = 10-12 F

Then using the information above we can construct a simple table to help us convert between pico-Farad (pF), to nano-Farad (nF), to micro-Farad (μF) and to Farads (F) as shown.
