a prefix indicating that an electrical unit is part of the CGS electrostatic system. These units are also indicated by the notation esu (as in "volt esu"). Although these units are defined naturally as part of the CGS system, they are usually much too large or much too small for most applications. They have been replaced almost completely by the corresponding SI units. Following are the SI equivalents for each of the "stat" units:
   Electric current: 1 statampere = 3.3356 x 10-10 amperes
   Electric charge: 1 statcoulomb = 3.3356 x 10-10 coulombs
   Capacitance: 1 statfarad = 1.1126 x 10-12 farads = 1.1126 picofarads
   Inductance: 1 stathenry = 8.9876 x 1011 henrys
   Resistance: 1 statohm = 8.9876 x 1011 ohms
   Potential: 1 statvolt = 299.79 volts
   Power: 1 statwatt = 10-7 watts
