# Electrical Capacitance Unit Converter

Last updated: Saturday, April 29, 2023

Electrical capacitance is a measure of the ability of a system to store electric charge. It is typically measured in units of farads (F) and describes the amount of charge that can be stored per unit of electric potential.

Here are some examples of electrical capacitance in real-life situations:

Capacitors: Capacitors are electrical components that store electrical energy in an electric field. They are commonly used in electronic circuits to filter, store, or regulate electrical power.

Touchscreens: Touchscreens use electrical capacitance to detect the presence and location of a finger or other object on the screen. The capacitance of the screen changes when it is touched, which can be detected and used to determine the location of the touch.

Power factor correction: Capacitors can be used to improve the efficiency of electrical power systems by correcting the power factor. This involves adding capacitors to the system to improve the balance between the amount of reactive power and the amount of real power consumed by the system.

Electrical capacitance is an important concept in electrical engineering and is used in many practical applications, such as the design of electrical circuits, the development of energy storage systems, and the construction of electronic devices.
