Energy Stored in a Capacitor

When we charge a capacitor we actually supply certain energy in it. The capacitor stores are energy in its electrostatic field. In other words, we can say the due to this energy capacitor sets up … Read more

Capacitors in Series and Capacitors in Parallel

We often connect a number of capacitors in series or parallel in a circuit. Obviously, we do it to obtain the desired capacitance value. Although, the equivalent capacitance of the series-parallel capacitors is different from … Read more

Capacitance – What is Capacitance?

Each capacitor has a special property. Due to this property, a capacitor can store electrical energy. We call the property as the capacitance. Again sometimes, we call the capacitance as the capacity of the capacitor. … Read more
