What values do capacitors come in?

Standard Capacitor Values & Color Codes

These are the most commonly available capacitor values. Tolerances are highly dependent on dielectric and package type.
pF pF pF
6.8 68 680
7.5 75 750
8.2 82 820

How do I convert uF to nF?

Convert between uF, nF and pF using the Newark’s uF – nF- pF conversion chart below….Capacitor uF – nF – pF Conversion.

uF/ MFD nF pF/ MMFD
0.001uF / MFD 1nF 1000pF(MMFD)
0.00082uF / MFD 0.82nF 820pF (MMFD)
0.0008uF / MFD 0.8nF 800pF (MMFD)
0.0007uF / MFD 0.7nF 700pF (MMFD)

What does 104 mean on a Capacitor?

Electronics Components: How to Read Capacitance Values on a Capacitor

Marking Capacitance (pF) Capacitance (ìF)
104 100,000 pF 0.1 ìF
224 220,000 pF 0.22 ìF
474 470,000 pF 0.47 ìF
105 1,000,000 pF 1 ìF

What happens if you use a higher rated capacitor?

Much the same way, a motor will not run properly with a weak capacitor. This is not to imply bigger is better, because a capacitor that is too large can cause energy consumption to rise. In both instances, be it too large or too small, the life of the motor will be shortened due to overheated motor windings.

Can I use a 50v capacitor instead of an 25v?

Yes. Just don’t go below 25v. The 4.7uF is an “exact” value, whereas the 25v is a maximum rating. Probably yes: Ideally you should replace the capacitor with one of the same nominal capacitance and an equal or greater maximum voltage rating.

What is K in capacitor?

K is for thousand. When a Capacitor is used, the implied unit is the Picofarad. 470,000 picofarads or 0.47 microfarads is what 470k on aCapacitor means.

What does 10 uF mean on a capacitor?

A ten micro-FaradCapacitor is written as 10uF. A 100n Farad Capacitor is written as 100n. It could be marked as 0.1, meaning 100nF.
