August 18, 2010 University Physics, Chapter 24 5 ! The proportionality constant between the charge q and the electric potential difference V is the capacitance C . ! We will call the electric potential difference V the “potential” or the “voltage” across the plates. ! The capacitance of a device depends on the area of the
