Question Motor starting capacitor

Could anyone tell me a good way to get the proper size starting capacitor for an electric (single phase) motor? Is there a formula that can be used for this? If there is, what about a capacitor start capacitor run motor?

The only ways that I am aware of to properly size the capacitor would be 1. Get the model number and serial number from the nameplate on the motor and look at a catalog or go to the manufacturers website, if they have one. 2. Get the information and contact the manufacturer direct. They are the ones that give the values of the capacitor.

Good Luck
