Electrical Energy and Capacitance 63 The potential difference between the two shells is therefore, 11 eee ra rb ba VV V kQ ab bb a b ==   ∆= = − − − =     The capacitance of this device is given by () e Qa b C Vk b a ∆− (b) When b , then . Thus, in the limit as , the capacitance found above becomes a >> bab −≈ b →∞ 0 4 Ca π = ee a k →= ab kb 16.59 The energy stored in a charged capacitor is 2 1 2 V =∆ WC .
