Capacitance

1. A capacitor has a charge of 0.002C when it is connected across a 100V battery, Find its capacitance.

Answer: 20uF

Solution:

You can use the equation:

C=Q/V

Where C is the capacitance in F, Q is the charge in C, V is the voltage in V.

C=Q/V

=0.002C/100V

=2Ã—ã€–10ã€—^(-5) F

=20Î¼F

2. A capacitor has a capacitance of 6.40uF. How much charge must be removed to lower the ...
