A ceramic capacitor is a fixed-value capacitor where the ceramic material acts as the dielectric. It is constructed of two or more alternating layers of ceramic and a metal layer acting as the electrodes. The composition of the ceramic material defines the electrical behavior and therefore applications.
103 = 0.01mfd = 10*103 = 104pf = 10nf
The value of this unit is considered too basic, so the unit farad is reduced again to the units as follows:
