Hey, does anyone know how you'd read the capacitor values off of ceramic disc capacitors? I just bought a pack of 100 from Radioshack (shoulda looked before I leaped perhaps, these are brown and I guess that's picofarad, when I wanted microfarad, damn jerk at radioshack...). Anyways, I've been trying to find how to do this, but I sorted thru them and I have a few piles...
"68K CO" capacitors (dark)
"Z5U 502 KCK" capactors (dark)
"E 150 +-5% NPO 100V" capacitors (they read I think 0.3 pF on my pop's reader...) (dark)
"KCK .01Z Z5U" capacitors (read to be 0.01 micro Farad, which is the scale I'm looking for actually, about 0.02 to 0.05 micro Farad, but they only gave me 2!... bleh!)
Any such help? They are either a light tan or a dark reddish brown color... as indicated, if not dark, then light.
Oh and PS, doing it on a breadboard might not be as handy as I thought if the input and output's aren't fastened down, or soldiered... but I shall prevail! Thanks for the help!
