Capacitance of Parallel Plate Capacitor

This is the formula for calculation of capacitance of a Parallel plate capacitor. Capacitance is the ability of a body to store an electrical charge. Any object that can be electrically charged exhibits capacitance. A common form of energy storage device is a parallel-plate capacitor. The values needed for this calculation are the dielectric constant, area of one plate and separation between the two plates.

k*8.85*10 -12*a d

The values needed for solving this formula are : k = dielectric constant, a = area of one plate in meter square, d = separation between the plates in meter
