Unit dF
Name decifarad
Category Capacitance
Details A decifarad (dF) is a unit of capacitance in the field of electronics and electrical engineering. Capacitance is the ability of a component or circuit to store electrical charge when a voltage is applied across it.

The term "decifarad" is derived from "deci", which is a metric prefix representing 1/10, and "farad", which is the standard unit of capacitance. Therefore, 1 decifarad (dF) is equal to 0.1 farads or 100,000 microfarads (µF).

However, decifarad (dF) is not commonly used in practice. Instead, farad (F), millifarad (mF), microfarad (µF), nanofarad (nF), and picofarad (pF) are more widely used as capacitance units to suit the different magnitudes of capacitors found in electronic and electrical systems.
