CAPACITOR MEASUREMENTS :
Many modern digital multimeters incorporate a capacitance measuring facility although this may be limited to just one or two ranges. The diagram below shows how to carry out a capacitance measurement. The capacitor on test is inserted into the two-way connector marked 'CAP' whilst the mode switch and range selector controls are set to DC, 200pF. The display indication shown corresponds to a capacitance of 329pF.
