## Capacitor Code: How to Calculate the value of Ceramic / Non-Polarized Capacitors?

Below is a very useful chart for calculation the right value of Ceramic / Non – Polarized Capacitors.
There are special codes and marking on capacitor, which tell about the value of capacitor.
Example:
Here is the Capacitor marking is “105”
It’s mean that = 10 + 5 Zeros = 1,000,000 pF
= 1000 nF = 1 µF

1. Simply desire to say your article is as amazing.
The clarity on your put up is simply spectacular and that i could assume you’re a professional on this subject.
imminent post. Thank you 1,000,000 and please keep
up the rewarding work.

2. polasani.venugopalreddy

i want to know capaictnce values

3. Mohammed Mwinyimvua

I understand now, how to read the code of non polarized capacitor

4. brillant is the only word i remember now

5. Roland Sanchez

Pleas I need the value for this capacitors:
1- WMU-822
3 K.volts

2- WHU- 562 J
M 3- K volts

3- 104 J
400 volts

4- WF- 684
400 volts

6. whats the value of capacitor 2M2?

• 2.2μF
in 2M2 , M stands for micro & that letter will be replaced by a decimal point.
another example 4K7 is 4.7KpF
