Capacitance

1. A capacitor has a charge of 0.002C when it is connected across a 100V battery, Find its capacitance.
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
=2×〖10〗^(-5) F
=20μF
2. A capacitor has a capacitance of 6.40uF. How much charge must be removed to lower the ...
