    If a part in the circuit is saying 100n is that 100pF?

    1n would be 1.0uF, right?

    opps answered my own question it's 0.1uF

    You can just let google do the conversion for you. Type in, for example, "100 nanofarad to microfarad" in the search box and it will output "100 nanofarads = 0.1 microfarads".

    Yep, it is cool, but it's even cooler to learn it by heart because one day Google may not be there to hold your hand!

    A hardly likely event considering the insiders want even tighter control of the company according to recent news. ;)
