Unit kF
Name kilofarad
Category Capacitance
Details A kilofarad (kF) is a unit of capacitance in the International System of Units (SI). Capacitance is the ability of an electrical component, such as a capacitor, to store electrical energy in an electric field. The farad (F) is the base unit for capacitance, and the kilofarad (kF) is equal to 1000 farads. In other words, 1 kilofarad is equal to 1,000 farads. This unit is typically used to express the capacitance of large capacitors or capacitance values in large electrical circuits and systems.
