Dielectrics You do not need to learn the material in this section. 4. Energy in Capacitors The potential energy stored in a capacitor is given by the formula: Y œ U Z " # ? (This is just the formula for the potential energy of a charged conductor given in chapter 25.) Since , this formula can be written: U œ G Z ?
