Capacitance

A capacitor has a value of one farad when one coulomb of stored charge causes a potential difference of one volt across its terminals. Read more >>

Capacitance is a measure of the amount of electric charge stored (or separated) for a given electric potential. In a capacitor, there are two conducting electrodes which are insulated from one another. The charge on the electrodes is +Q and -Q, and V represents the potential difference between the electrodes. The SI unit of capacitance is the farad; 1 farad = 1 coulomb per volt. Read more >>
