Usman Ansari 01/29/2011 ME 340 Mechatronics: Chapter 3 Summary In circuits, a capacitance refers to a charge-storing element that accounts for electric field effects. Inductance accounts for magnetic field effects. Charge on a capacitor is equal to the voltage times the capacitance. Current is equal to the capacitance times the time rate of change of voltage. Voltage is equal to the inductance times the time rate of change of current across the inductor. Capacitances in parallel and inductances in series are combined in the same manner as
