Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, we have made a few adjustments to the service that we offer. We are trying to stay open in these difficult times as long as we can, and aim to deliver the best service that we can.
Capacitors store electric charge and their capacitance is a measure of how much charge they can hold. Capacitance is measured in farads, symbol F.
There are many types of capacitor but they can be split into two main groups: polarised (generally 1µF and greater) and unpolarised (generally less than 1µF). Each group has its own circuit symbol.
