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 hit the button to calculate 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 but more likely 100pF.

If the capacitor code is only 2 digits, then that is certainly the value in picofarads (pF).
