The ratio of charge to potential of an electrical device (capacitor) It's the ability of the capacitor to store electrical charge as its potential rises
The ability of a dielectric material between conductors to store energy when a difference of potential exists between the conductors The unit of measurement is the farad Cable capacitance is usually measured in picofarads (pF)
Property of a pair of electric conductors separated by a nonconducting material (such as air) that permits storage of electric energy by the separation of electric charge, and that is measured by the amount of separated charge that can be stored per unit of electric potential between the conductors. If electric charge is transferred between two initially uncharged conductors, they become equally (but oppositely) charged. A potential difference is set up between them and some of the electricity can be stored. Capacitance C is the ratio of the amount of charge q on one of the conductors to the potential difference V between the conductors, or C = q/V. The unit of capacitance is coulombs per volt (C/V), or farads (F)
In a capacitor or a system of conductors and dielectrics, that property which permits the storage of electrically separated charges when potential differences exist between conductors The capacitance of a capacitor is defined as the ratio between the electric charge that has been transferred from one electrode to the other and the resultant difference in potential between the electrodes
A measure of the electrical charge of a capacitor consisting of two plates separated by an insulating material
Capacitance is the property of a capacitor, a device, or an electric circuit that defines its ability to store an electrical charge (or energy) when a given voltage is applied The international unit of measurement for capacitance is Farad (or microfarads or picofarads), which is named after the famous English inventor Michael Faraday (1791 - 1867)
The property in a system of conductors and dielectrics that permits the storage of electrical charges whenever a difference in potential exists between the conductors Capacitance is undesirable in copper cable because it interferes with signals by opposing the desired flow of current
(C) In general, the ability of a conductor to store charge In particular, charge divided by applied voltage, measured in farads (F) C=Q/V Or, the current a capacitor carries divided by rate of change of voltage C=I/(dV/dt), where dV/dt is the rate of voltage change
That property of a system of conductors and dielectrics which permits the storage of electricity when potential difference exists between the conductors
In a capacitor or system of conductors and dielectrics, the property that permits the storage of electrically separated charges when potential differences exist between the conductors Capacitance is related to charge and voltage as follows: C = Q/V, where C is the capacitance in farads, Q is the charge in coulombs, and V is the voltage in volts
The property of an electrical conductor (dielectric in a capacitor) that permits the storage of energy as a result of electrical displacement The basic unit of capacitance is the farad, however, measurement is more commonly in microfarads or picofarads
1 The capability of storing electrical charge Unit of measure is the Farad (F) 2 In a capacitor or system of conductors and dielectrics, the property that permits the storage of electrically separated charges when potential differences exist between the conductors Capacitance is related to charge and voltage as follows: C = Q/V, where C is the capacitance in farads, Q is the charge in coulombs, and V is the voltage in volts
The capacitance value expresses the ability of a capacitor to store electrical charge The unit of capacitance is the farad
The property of an electric nonconductor that permits the storage of energy as a result of electric displacement when opposite surfaces of the nonconductor are maintained at a difference of potential
The property of a system of conductors and dielectrics that permits the storage of electrically separated charges when potential differences exist between the conductors
{i} property of an insulator that allows energy to be stored due to the separation of the charge (Electricity)
The ratio of the charge on either plate of a capacitor to the potential difference between the plates capacitive reactance Reactance in an a-c circuit containing capacitance which causes a lagging voltage
