hi. im new to electronics and i just bought my first zener diode pack.
i searched on the internet about it and i understood how it works.
but the only problem here is that i cant understand the values written on the diode so i dont know what im dealing with.

i attached images from all sides of one diode in below.
can any one plz tell me what the characters written on the diode mean???

tnx inadvance

The number after the 'C' is the voltage..... your example shows C10 - a 10V zener.

If it is followed by a 'V', this represents a decimal point.

So C6V8 would be a 6.8V zener.
