How to Read Ceramic Capacitors

About: Im oNly a Boy 15 Years Old !!! I Love the Electronics !!! and all to Mechanic !! I Love Parkour!! And MA Pink Minion Girl!!

For example your capasitor says "103" this means that the first two digits bone "10" remain as they are bone is 10, the third indicates the number of "0" you have to put after the first two digits bone "10 "+" 000 "= 10000 pF, 10000 have peak bone farads of capacity, you always give in picofarads, then if you want you can go to nano farads, bone 10.000 nF = 10 nF.

If the capacitor have a letter Like M,J,K is The tolerance. 



LETRA Tolerancia
"M" +/- 20%
"K" +/- 10%
"J" +/- 5%

If the Capacitor Have Colors..
