Unit ZF
Name zettafarad
Category Capacitance
Details In the field of capacitance, a zeptofarad (zF) is a unit of measurement for capacitance. It is a derived unit in the International System of Units (SI) and is equal to 10^(-21) farads. Capacitance is the ability of an electrical component or device to store electrical charge when a potential difference (voltage) is applied across its terminals. The basic unit of capacitance is the farad (F), and the zeptofarad is one of many smaller units derived from the farad to describe smaller capacitance values.

A zeptofarad is an incredibly small unit of capacitance and is generally not used in real-world applications. Instead, it serves as a theoretical reference value when discussing extremely small capacitance components or experiments related to nanotechnology or quantum electronics.
