Hallo,

I'm using for first time this kit with software included to check resistor and capacitor.

No problem with resistor.

I don't understand how calculate the capacitor value starting from data software.

Example.

Capacitor 470nF

Test rate from 10Khz to 12Khz

Theoretically the impedance is between 33,9 and 28,2, so I'm using RFB=10ohm  and calibration Z = 10ohm

Software returns this results:

How can I estimate the capacitor value?

Thanks!
