Definitions for "Farad"
The standard unit of electrical capacity; the capacity of a condenser whose charge, having an electro-motive force of one volt, is equal to the amount of electricity which, with the same electromotive force, passes through one ohm in one second; the capacity, which, charged with one coulomb, gives an electro-motive force of one volt.
The derived SI unit of capacitance: the capacitance of a capacitor between the plates where there is a potential difference of 1 volt when charged by a quantity of electricity of 1 coulomb. This is a very large unit; microfarads (10 -6 ) and picofarads (10 -12 ) are most commonly used.
unit of measure of capacitance. Named after Farad.
