antique_radio_schematics Capacitor uF / pF Conversion Chart

When reading schematics, repairing electronics or shopping for capacitors, you often must convert between uF and pF.
Paper and electrolytic capacitors are usually expressed in terms of uF (microfarads). Short forms for micro farad include
uF, mfd, MFD, MF and UF. Mica capacitors are usually expressed in terms of pF (micromicrofarads) (picofarads).
Short forms for micromicrofarads include pF, mmfd, MMFD, MMF, uuF and PF. A pF is one-millionth of a uF. In
between a pF and a uF is a nF which is one-one thousands of a uF. Converting back and forth between uF, nF
and pF can be confusing with all those darn decimal points to worry about. Below is a uF - nF- pF conversion chart.
Just print a copy and tape it to your will come in handy. Have fun with your electronic repairs and restorations.
