Lesson: Defining CapacitancePhysics
In this lesson, we will learn how to relate capacitance to the net charge stored on surfaces and the electric potential difference between the surfaces.
Sample Question Videos
What capacitance is needed to store 3.00 µC of charge at a voltage of 120 V?
A set of parallel plates has a capacitance of 5.0 µF. How much charge must be added to the plates to increase the potential difference between them by 100 V?
Calculate the voltage applied to a 2.00 µF capacitor when it holds 3.10 µC of charge.
