# Capacitance Calculator

The calculator will calculate the Capacitance, Electrical Charge and Potential Difference based on selection and input-values.

The calculator finds the Capacitance, Electrical Charge and Potential Difference based on input values. The capacitance is a measurement of the amount of electric charge stored/separated for a given electric potential.

## Formula

Capacitance:C=Q/V,

Electrical Charge:Q=CV

Potential Difference:V=Q/C

**where,**

C = Capacitance,

Q = Electrical Charge,

V = Potential Difference.

### The capacitance

Capacitor is an electrical component which may hold charge, capacitance is ability to store an electric charge.

The capacity is based on shape of the capacitor and the dielectric material used between the plates.

The large size of capacitors hold more energy than small size capacitors,

Used as an energy storage device and key component in filters and oscillators.

#### The SI unit of capacitance is farad and Symbol is "F".

### Types of Capacitors

Electrolytic Capacitor.

Mica Capacitor.

Film Capacitor.

Paper Capacitor.

Non-Polarized Capacitor.

Ceramic Capacitor.
