How to Read Capacitors

Capacitance Values - and How to Read Them Capacitors are used in a wide range of electronic components and circuits. They form an integral part of electronics. The capacitance of capacitors is measured in a unit known as Farads, represented by the letter ‘F’. A capacitor that has higher capacitance can be used for storing more charge as compared to one with a smaller capacitance value. One Farad is a very high value for capacitance and usually smaller units are used, namely pico Read more [...]
