Unit nF
Name nanofarad
Category Capacitance
Details A nanofarad (nF) is a unit of capacitance in the field of electronics and electrical engineering. Capacitance is the ability of a component or a device to store an electrical charge. The basic unit of capacitance is the farad (F).

A nanofarad is equal to one-billionth (10^-9) of a farad, symbolized with 'nF'. In other words, 1 nF equals 0.000000001 farads or 1 x 10^-9 F. Capacitors with capacitance values in the nanofarad range are commonly used in various electronic circuits, such as filters, oscillators, and coupling circuits between different stages of amplifiers.
