Get the answer pauls3743 August 8, 2012 9:56:27 PM Normally with a capacitor the important dimensions you'r elooking for are the capacitance (Farads F/mF/uF/pF) and the maximum operating voltage (V). m 0 l vrumor August 8, 2012 10:17:04 PM Most likely doing homework. m 0 l InvalidError August 8, 2012 10:28:02 PM mInInOwA said:I would advise using a calliper rather than a ruler, but why would you possible need to measure them? Standard diameters are in 2.5mm increments while standard heights are in 5mm increments which makes eyeballing with a ruler fairly error-free. Often, PCB layouts have enough clearance around capacitors to accommodate one size bump both ways, though it may be a very tight fit. m 0 l @loki August 19, 2012 3:47:27 PM mInInOwA said:I would advise using a calliper rather than a ruler, but why would you possible need to measure them?
