What kind of capaciter is the yellow?

Ceramic, and Tantalum capacitors. Those come to mind
Anonymous 06/29/14(Sun)04:51 UTC+1 No.659859 Report

Is it standard ceramic or what
Anonymous 06/29/14(Sun)04:57 UTC+1 No.659861 Report

Also these things are marked 104. are they interchangable with ceramics? Any reason i shouldnt use them instead of ceramics in my preamp?
Anonymous 06/29/14(Sun)05:24 UTC+1 No.659865 Report

Its a multilayer ceramic capacitor, better than the conventional disk caps (the orange ones) and higher values, also lower esr (cuz the layers)

Alright so educate me, why should one choose ceramic vs electrolytic? If given the choice, should i always go monolythic over ceramic?

don't you mean 0.1F ?
Anonymous 06/29/14(Sun)12:36 UTC+1 No.660026 Report

not him but 0.1uF
.000 000 1 F
Anonymous 06/29/14(Sun)13:16 UTC+1 No.660042 Report

>0.1F ?
no, because: 0.1uF = 100nF = 100000pF (MMFD)
uF or MF or MFD are used to denote microfarad

>why should one choose ceramic vs electrolytic
ceramic caps are not polarity sensitive and generally used to pass ac and block dc when only a small capacitance is required
electrolytic caps are generally polarized so they must be oriented properly and are used when larger capacitance is needed
non-polarized electrolytics are available and mostly used in passive crossover networks

I have never seen "MF" used to denote microfared, probably because that totally goes against convention (M being "mega-" and m being "milli-").

When reading schematics, repairing radios and buying capacitors, you often must convert between uF, nF and pF.
Paper and electrolytic capacitors are usually expressed in terms of uF (microfarads). Short forms for micro farad include
uF, mfd, MFD, MF and UF. Mica capacitors are usually expressed in terms of pF (micromicrofarads) (picofarads).
Short forms for micromicrofarads include pF, mmfd, MMFD, MMF, uuF and PF. A pF is one-millionth of a uF. In
between a pF and a uF is a nF which is one-one thousands of a uF. Converting back and forth between uF, nF
and pF can be confusing with all those darn decimal points to worry about.

4MF capacitor WITH EXPOSED CONTACTS. Imagine the fun of having to handle one of these...is it charged, isn't it charged? Russion Roulette, EE style!

Fucking Si, how does it work?

Read the conversion chart...

Not OP but I wanted to know if there's any difference between tantalum and ceramic capacitors specially when used in amps and audio related circuits.
Anonymous 06/30/14(Mon)19:27 UTC+1 No.660802 Report

is just as idiotic as using Mhos instead of using correctly the SI

wait what, americans dont have a µ on their keyboards?
Anonymous 06/30/14(Mon)20:26 UTC+1 No.660830 Report

depends on the layout, pic related us-intl layout
Anonymous 07/04/14(Fri)01:32 UTC+1 No.662220 Report

no, on american keyboards all nonstandard letters are alt codes. So for µ we have to hold alt and type 230 on the numpad.
Anonymous 07/05/14(Sat)03:03 UTC+1 No.662759 Report

no mention of multi-meter

OP, you can find this out for yourself in less time than it takes to make this thread.
