    CAPACITANCE OF A PARALLEL PLATE CAPACITOR


    Parallel Plate Capacitor

    ppcap - Fsc 2nd Year chapter No :1 | ELECTROSTATICS

    The capacitance of flat, parallel metallic plates of area A and separation d is given by the expression above where:
    ppcap3 - Fsc 2nd Year chapter No :1 | ELECTROSTATICS = permittivity of space and k = relative permittivity of the dielectric material between the plates.
    k=1 for free space, k>1 for all media, approximately =1 for air.
    The Farad, F, is the SI unit for capacitance, and from the definition of capacitance is seen to be equal to a Coulomb/Volt.
    Any of the active parameters in the expression below can be calculated by clicking on it. Default values will be provided for any parameters left unspecified, but all parameters can be changed. After editing data, you must click on the desired parameter to calculate; values will not automatically be forced to be consistent.

    Capacitance of Parallel Plates

    The electric field between two large parallel plates is given by
    ppcap5 - Fsc 2nd Year chapter No :1 | ELECTROSTATICS

    The voltage difference between the two plates can be expressed in terms of the work done on a positive test charge q when it moves from the positive to the negative plate.
    ppcap6 - Fsc 2nd Year chapter No :1 | ELECTROSTATICS It then follows from the definition of capacitance that

    If oppositely charges parallel conducting plates are treated like infinite planes (neglecting fringing), then Gauss' law can be used to calculate the electric field between the plates. Presuming the plates to be at equilibrium with zero electric field inside the conductors, then the result from a charged conducting surface can be used:
