Faraday (not to be confused with farad ) is an off-system unit of measurement of electric charge used in electrochemistry , designation: F  .
The unit is named after the English physicist Michael Faraday , who made a great contribution to the study of electricity , in particular, discovered the phenomenon of electromagnetic induction . 1 faraday corresponds to a charge of 1 mole of electrons or singly charged ions ( 1 Ф = N A · e ); when a charge of 1 faraday is passed through an electrolytic cell, 1 mole of singly charged ions is released on each electrode. Numerically 1 Faraday is equal to the Faraday constant .
1 faraday = 96,485.3415 pendant
1 faraday ≈ 26.8 ampere / hour
