How To Measure Capacitance

Capacitor Specifications

In this article, we will go over one main way to measure the capacitance of a capacitor or any device, which is by using a capacitance meter. This may be a standalone capacitance meter or part of a multimeter.

Measure Capacitance with a Capacitance Meter of a Multimeter

The best and easiest way to measure capacitance is through a multimeter which contains a capacitance meter.

Simply switch the meter to the capacitance meter and take the probes and measure across the leads of the capacitor.
