Examples of capacitance in the following topics:

 Capacitance is the measure of an object's ability to store electric charge.
 Capacitance is the measure of an object's ability to store electric charge.
 Any body capable of being charged in any way has a value of capacitance.
 For a parallelplate capacitor, this equation can be used to calculate capacitance:
 Express the relationship between the capacitance, charge of an object, and potential difference in the form of equation


 A dielectric partially opposes a capacitor's electric field but can increase capacitance and prevent the capacitor's plates from touching.
 If it has a high permittivity, it also increases the capacitance for any given voltage.


 Accordingly, capacitance is greatest in devices with high permittivity, large plate area, and minimal separation between the plates.

 For a parallelplate capacitor, capacitance (C) is related to dielectric permittivity (ε), surface area (A), and separation between the plates (d):




 where $q$ is the charge on the capacitor, $L$ is the inductance of the coil, $R$ is the resistance, $C$ the capacitance, and $V$ is the applied voltage.
 (d) If the inductance is $25 \times 10 ^{3}$ H (1 Henry = 1 volt per amp per second), what capacitance is required to have a characteristic period of 1 second?
