A capacitor (originally known as a condenser) is a passive electrical component used to store energy electrostatically in an electric field. Common types of capacitors are Aluminum Electrolytic, Ceramic, Film, Paper, Mica, and Tantalum. Capacitors are expressed in terms of farads. Common abbreviations are uF (microfarads), nF (nanofarads), and pF (picofarads or micromicrofarads). Less common abbreviations for capacitors include mfd, MFD, mf, MF, MMFD, MMF, uuF, UF, NF, and PF.

Whether you are prototyping on a breadboard, repairing a circuit board, reading schematics, purchasing capacitors, or you are in any other kind of electrical field of work or hobby, you may often have to convert between uF, nF and pF capacitors. Since converting uF to nF, uF to pF, nF to uF, nF to pF, pF to nF, and pF to uF can be time consuming, use our handy conversion chart to make converting back and forth easy. We even have a free printer friendly version that you can print out and use over and over again. Also be sure to check out our Voltage Divider Calculator to help you choose the correct resistors for your next project.
