What is the Capacitance Tolerance of an Aluminum Capacitor?

5Every capacitor has a nominal capacitance, which is expressed on the device and in its specifications. However, this actual capacitance level can change over time, as the device wears, or for other reasons. The tolerance of the capacitor, described as a percentage, indicates how much the actual capacitance of the device will vary compared to its nominal capacitance. This is expressed as a percentage figure and, as long as the capacitor is functioning within the rated percentages, it is functioning according to specifications.
