I'm looking for a "22pF" capacitor, and I went to my local Radio-Shack, and all the capacitors they have are labled with "μF"

Is this the same thing? Don't want to solder in the wrong capacitors for my project.

Thanks

NO !
22pF is picofarad
22F is microFarad
So it's a complete different value,you need to use the same 22pF

Aha, thank you...guess I'll have to order these pF capacitors online, since Radio-Shack (my local one) sucks.

Thanks a lot.
