22 Capacitance Capacitors are circuit components whose2 terminals areconductive plates separated by a dielectric (insulating) material. Capacitance is the circuit parameter used to describe a capacitor. Capacitance is the behavior based on phenomena associated with electric fields.
33 Capacitance Dueto the insulating material between the two conductors, electric chargeis not transported through thecapacitor – therefore incapableof passing current . However, when a voltageis applied to the two plates, they displacecharges (specifically electrons) within the dielectric material causing a displacement current flow until theplates reach maximum possiblepotential difference. Oncethis displacement is complete, no more movement of chargetakes place. At theterminals thedisplacement current is indistinguishable from the conduction current.
