PHY2049: Chapter 25 4 Î Capacitor ± Two conductors, electrically isolated from each other ± Particularly when the pair is used as device in electronic circuit to store charge and for other purposes Î Capacitance ± C is a constant that characterizes given pair of conductors in given configuration ± For given (applied) V, larger capacitor stores more q ± For given q, smaller V appears in larger capacitor Î Units F (farad) 1 F = 1 C/V
