n : a capacitance unit equal to one billion farads
Wikipedia Meaning and Definition on 'Abfarad'
The farad (symbol: F) is the SI unit of capacitance. The unit is named after the English physicist Michael Faraday.
A farad is the charge in coulombs which a capacitor will accept for the potential across it to change 1 volt. A coulomb is 1 ampere second. Example: A 47 mA current causes the voltage across a capacitor to increase by 1 volt per second. It therefore has a capacitance of 47 mF. It has the base SI representation of s4·A2·m−2·kg−1. Further equalities follow:
A=ampere, V=volt, C=coulomb, J=joule, m=meter, N=newton, s=second, W=watt, kg=kilogram, Ω=ohm[See more about Abfarad at Dictionary 3.0 Encyclopedia]
