The stated values once you understand the numeric codes are
usually different when actually measured by a capacitor tester.

Depending on the style of capacitor the value can be 2% 5% 10% or 200% off.

It can be very difficult. There is a kind of standard that the value printed is generally in PICO farads, so the one you show there is 22+2 noughts, so thats 2200pF or 2.2nF, or 0.0022uF
