A question about capacitor

Post by 928928 »

Recently, I have learned something about capacitor and learned a lot about it.A few days ago, I read an article about capacitor, which talked about the functions and definition of the capacitor. I think it’s useful and it helps me a lot when I studied the capacitor.( to know more about this article, one can visit the website:http://www.apogeeweb.net/article/114.html )
However, now I am meeting a problem, which is in the following picture.
I have this capacitor in my hand, four binding posts, who can give an explanation? In addition, how is its internal wiring method? Y type or △ type? It is written as 299uf, but the one-three and one-four-column measurement is 98uf, the one-two-column measurement is 45uf, the second and third-column measurement is 32uf, and the reverse is the same. How is the capacitance calculated? How to calculate the withstand voltage as a DC capacitor?

Thanks for this info. A capacitor is a passive two-terminal electronic component that stores electrical energy in an electric field.
