Default How to calculate capacitor values for fully parametric EQ?

hey all-

I came across this design for a fully parametric EQ that I will use for the mixer on this site: Simple, Easy Parametric and Graphic EQ's, Plus Peaks and Notches

The only thing I can't seem to figure out is what are the capacitor values I should use for my frequency bands? I have an idea in mind as to the frequency values (five band EQ):

Band 1: 50 Hz-225 Hz
Band 2: 200 Hz-900 Hz
Band 3: 800 Hz-3.6 K
Band 4: 2K-9K
Band 5: 4.2K-19K

the third diagram down "a simple graphic EQ" has the formula alongside.

Further down he takes you through a worked example.
