Capacitors includes the following learning objectives:

  • Define Capacitance and the Farad;
  • Select and use Q=CV;
  • Describe the construction of a capacitor and understand that a dielectric between the plates will increase the capacitance;
  • Use C =??0A/d for a parallel plate capacitor, with no dielectric;
  • State and use the equations for capacitors connected in series and parallel;
  • Describe the uses of a capacitor for the storage of energy in applications such as flash photography and back-up power supplies.
