What is the unit conversion for a pF (I'm assuming picaforce).. 10^what power?

I have a physics question that wants me to convert force to pForce. I'm assuming that's a pica or pika? What is the unit conversion for that.. like 10^what power?

    pF is pico farad, a unit of capacitance.

    1 pF = 1e-12 Farad

    the first and most important thing any engineer or technician (or

    anyone living in the modern world) is learn the prefixes for the

    metric system. The basic ones are very simple.

    k (kilo) = x1000 = e3

    M (Mega) = x1000000 = e6

    G (Giga) = x1000000000 = e9

    T (Tera) = x1000000000000 = e12

    d (deci) = /10 = e-1

    c (cent) = /100 = e-2

    m (milli) = /1000 = e-3

    µ (micro) = /1000000 = e-6

    n (nano) = /1000000000 = e-9

    p (pico) = /1000000000000 = e-12

    f (femto) = /1000000000000000 = e-15
