It sure is. Base value is normally pF. ie: 473 = 47 x 1000pF = 47nF

Yes, 473 is the EIA code

It's an expression of the cap's value in picofarads, that
is, 47 followed by 3 zeroes = 47,000pF. An alternative
(which some folk don't like) is 47n. There was a little
chat about this probably a couple of months ago, as it
related to multipliers like "u" "n" "p" and bad handwriting

In most places yes, read 473 the same way you would aresitor, except
substitute "ohms" for "pF", so 473 = 47000pF = 47nF = 0.047uF. TTYL

Never ;-) However it will be between 42.3nF and 51.7nF when measured. <g>
