EE 330 Lab #2 Spring 2007 Cylindrical Capacitor You have accepted a position of a design engineer with a company producing capacitors, inductors and other electrical devices. Your first assignment is to design a cylindrical capacitor. The design requirements are the following: (1) capacitance 40pF; (2) working voltage 250V; (3) safety factor 10; (4) the device must fit into a cylindrical casing with a diameter 6mm and a length 1cm. Assume that the outer conductor has the diameter and the length of the casing. You have at your disposal six dielectric materials that can be used as a filling. The following table summarizes their properties.
