The standard unit of electrical capacity; the capacity of a
condenser whose charge, having an electro-motive force of one
volt, is equal to the amount of electricity which, with the
same electromotive force, passes through one ohm in one
second; the capacity, which, charged with one coulomb, gives
an electro-motive force of one volt.
From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) :
n 1: the capacitance of a capacitor that has an equal and
opposite charge of 1 coulomb on each plate and a voltage
difference of 1 volt between the plates [syn: farad, F]
