there are so many standards for capacitor naming-

usually, if there are only two figures written on the capacitor, the value is in picofarads

eg: 33

=33 picofarads. , if the written value is "10", it is 10 picofarads.

if the figure is three : like 223, 102, 103 etc

if the figure is xyz, the value will be xyfollowed by z zeros (in picofarads)

ie, 223 : 22 000 picofarads - .022 microfarads
103: 10 000 picofarads - .01 microfarads
102: 10 00 picofarads - .001 microfarads
104: 10 0000 picofarads - .1 microfarads
