Capacitance of Simple Configurations Notes & Topics for Electrical Engineering

By Vinit Kumar|Updated : September 24th, 2018

In this article, you will find the Study Notes on Capacitance of Simple Configurations which will cover the information such as Capacitance of parallel plate capacitor and Energy stored in a capacitor.

Capacitance can be defined as

Dielectric-Constant (1)

The capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor:Dielectric-Constant (2)

Where S cross-sectional area and d is a distance in between two plates.

Energy Stored in a Capacitor: Energy stored in a capacitor is given by

Dielectric-Constant (3)

where, C, V & Q are the capacitance, potential and charge on a plate respectively.

For a coaxial capacitor

Dielectric-Constant (4)

All the Best.
