statfarad (statF)

The statfarad (abbreviated statF) is the unit of capacitance in the cgs (centimeter/gram/second) or small-unit metric system . It is equivalent to 1.1126 x 10 -12 farads. The farad (F) is the standard unit of capacitance in the International System of Units ( SI ).

A capacitance as large as 1 F is almost unknown in the real world, but a 1-statF capacitance is common. In fact, two wires only a few centimeters long, placed in the vicinity of and parallel to each other, display a mutual capacitance on the order of 1 statF.

In practical applications, the microfarad (µF) and the picofarad (pF) are most often used to quantify capacitance; the statfarad is rarely seen in literature. For comparison, 1 µF = 10 -6 F and 1 pF = 10 -12 F. Thus, 1 statF = 1.1126 x 10 -6 µF = 1.1126 pF.
