6. Capacitors and Capacitance

Capacitance Example No1

A capacitor is constructed from two conductive metal plates 30cm x 50cm which are spaced 6mm apart from each other, and uses dry air as its only dielectric material. Calculate the capacitance of the capacitor.

the capacitance of a capacitor

Then the value of the capacitor consisting of two plates separated by air is calculated as 0.221nF, or 221pF.
