  electrician.]  (Elec.) 
  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  1.6  [wn]: 
 
  farad 
  n  :  the  capacitance  of  a  capacitor  that  has  an  equal  and
