    • One farad is the SI unit to measure capacitance of electricity (the capability of a body or device to store an electric charge).
    • This was a conference bringing together mostly physicists involved with making very precise measurements of quantities like mass, time, frequency, resistance, capacitance (farads) etc.
    • If it takes something the size of a can of tuna to hold a farad, then 10,080 farads is going to take up a LOT more space than a single AA battery!
    • The farad, a measure of a device's capacity to store electric charge, probably doesn't do full justice to his contributions to science.
