Calculate Capacitor Values

This calculator is used to find the value of a capacitor from the 3 digit code printed on its side. Enter the code in the box below and then press the 'calculate' button, that will be the value of the capacitor.

If the rightmost digit is zero, then the code may be a value in pF instead of the 3-digit code... example: 100 should indicate 10pF but it may instead be a marking of the actual value of 100pF. If the rightmost digit is not zero, then the value is probably coded. Example: 101 is not 101pF, it will calculate as: 100pF. Example: 273J, you would enter 273, and the result will be: 0.027uF. You leave out the "J", that is the Voltage Value.

If the capacitor code is only 2 digits, then this will be the value in picofarads (pF).
