[Value of µF] = [Value of hF] * 100000000
[Value of hF] = [Value of µF] / 100000000
A hectofarad (hF) is a unit of capacitance in the International System of Units (SI). Capacitance is a measure of the ability of a device or component, such as a capacitor, to store an electrical charge.
The base unit of capacitance in the SI system is the farad (F), named after the English scientist Michael Faraday. A hectofarad (hF) is equal to 100 farads (1 hF = 100 F).
In the field of electronics, the farad is a relatively large unit of capacitance, so it is more common to use smaller units such as microfarads (µF), nanofarads (nF), or picofarads (pF) when discussing the capacitance of everyday electronic circuits and components. Nonetheless, hectofarad (hF) is used in situations where large capacitance values are required, such as in power electronics and high-energy storage systems.
A microfarad (µF) is a unit of capacitance in the field of electronics and electrical engineering. Capacitance is the ability of a component or system to store electric charge, typically associated with capacitors. The symbol for microfarad is µF, which represents one millionth (1x10^-6) of a farad (F), the unit of capacitance in the International System of Units (SI).
In simple terms, a capacitor with capacitance of 1 µF can store 1 micro-coulomb (µC) of electric charge when the voltage across it is 1 volt. Capacitors with larger capacitance values can store more electric charge or handle higher voltage ratings. Microfarad is a commonly used unit for capacitors, especially in electronic circuits and devices.
