# How do you calculate 104 capacitor?

## How do you calculate 104 capacitor?

For code 104, the third digit is 4, so you have to write 0000 (4 zeros) after the 10 (first two-digit). So the capacitance value for 104 will be 100000 picofarads or 100 nanofarads or 0.1 microfarad.

## What will be the value of the capacitor which have a code 103 written over its body?

Standard EIA Decade Values Table – decade 10 to 100 nF. The 3 digit capacitor code 103 stands for 10 nF, in words: ten nanofarads capacitance.

What is the value of 473j for a disk capacitor?

The 3 digit capacitor code 473 stands for 47 nF, in words: fourty-seven nanofarads capacitance.

### How do you find the value of 103 capacitor?

The example capacitor has a 3 digit number printed on it (103). The first two digits, in this case the 10 give us the first part of the value. The third digit indicates the number of extra zeros, in this case 3 extra zeros. So the value is 10 with 3 extra zeros, or 10,000.

### What is a 103 capacitor?

Capacitors will have a number on them like 103, 104, 224 . The last number represents the number of zeroes. All values are in picofarads. For example: 103 becomes 10 + 000 (3 zeroes) pF = 10000 pF = 10 nF.

What is a 103 Capacitor?

## How do you calculate parallel capacitance?

When capacitors are connected across each other (side by side) this is called a parallel connection. This is shown below. To calculate the total overall capacitance of a number of capacitors connected in this way you add up the individual capacitances using the following formula: CTotal = C1 + C2 + C3 and so on.

## How do you identify ceramic capacitors?

Ceramic types of capacitors generally have a 3-digit code printed onto their body to identify their capacitance value in pico-farads. Generally the first two digits indicate the capacitors value and the third digit indicates the number of zero’s to be added.

What is the value of a capacitor?

Capacitor values can be of over 10 9 range, and even more as super capacitors are now being used. To prevent confusion with large numbers of zeros attached to the values of the different capacitors the common prefixes pico (10 -12 ), nano (10 -9) and micro (10 -6) are widely used.

### What is a disc capacitor?

disk capacitor. [′disk kə‚pas·əd·ər] (electricity) A small, flat, circular capacitor that usually has a ceramic dielectric .
