Capacitance, Capacitors and Circuits. Start with a review The capacitance C is defined as V Q C Δ To calculate the capacitance, one starts by introduce Q to the object, and use the Laws we have so far to calculate for the Δ V .

Example: Capacitance of a Cylindrical Capacitor Step 1: introduce Q to the rod (radius a ) and – Q to the shell (inner radius b ): E Step 2: Use Gauss’s Law to calculate the electric field between the the ron and the shell to be (see the example in Gauss’s Law chapter): r E ˆ r l Q 0 2 πε = r Step 3: Calculate for Δ V : ) ln( 2 2 0 0 a b l Q dr r d V b a l Q b a Δ = = = r E r Step 4: Capacitance is ) ln( 2 a 0 b l V Q C =
