Chapter 3 Summary
In circuits, a capacitance refers to a chargestoring 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
