Examples of capacitance in the following topics:

 Like in the case of resistors in parallel, the reciprocal of the circuit's total capacitance is equal to the sum of the reciprocals of the capacitance of each individual capacitor :
 Total capacitance for a circuit involving several capacitors in parallel (and none in series) can be found by simply summing the individual capacitances of each individual capacitor .
 To find total capacitance of the circuit, simply break it into segments and solve piecewise .
 With effectively two capacitors left in parallel, we can add their respective capacitances (c) to find the total capacitance for the circuit.
 Determine the total capacitance for the capacitors connected in series and in parallel

 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.

 Response of an RLC circuit depends on the driving frequency—at large enough frequencies, inductive (capacitive) term dominates.
 The impedance Z at small frequencies $(\nu \ll \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi LC}})$ is dominated by the capacitive term, assuming that the frequency is high enough so that XC is much larger than R.

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

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

 However, the value of Vmax/Imax is useful, and is called the capacitive reactance (XC) of the component.
 The value of XC (C standing for capacitor) depends on its capacitance (C) and the frequency (f) of the alternating current.

 In terms of voltage, across the capacitor voltage is given by Vc=Q/C, where Q is the amount of charge stored on each plate and C is the capacitance.

 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?
