One farad is equal to?

Farad is a unit of capacitance - to measure the capacity of devices called capacitors. Farad means coloumb/voltage, in other words, if the capacitor has a capacity of 1 farad, it will store a charge of 1 coloumb for every volt. This is a huge unit; real capacitors are usually specified in microfarad, nanofarad or picofarad.
