WHAT DOES CAPACITANCE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Capacitance

Capacitance is the ability of a body to store an electrical charge. Any object that can be electrically charged exhibits capacitance. A common form of energy storage device is a parallel-plate capacitor. In a parallel plate capacitor, capacitance is directly proportional to the surface area of the conductor plates and inversely proportional to the separation distance between the plates. If the charges on the plates are +q and −q respectively, and V gives the voltage between the plates, then the capacitance C is given by which gives the voltage/current relationship The capacitance is a function only of the geometry of the conductors and the permittivity of the dielectric. It is independent of the potential difference between the conductors and the total charge on them. The SI unit of capacitance is the farad, named after the English physicist Michael Faraday. A 1 farad capacitor, when charged with 1 coulomb of electrical charge, has a potential difference of 1 volt between its plates. Historically, a farad was regarded as an inconveniently large unit, both electrically and physically.

Definition of capacitance in the English dictionary

The definition of capacitance in the dictionary is the property of a system that enables it to store electric charge. Other definition of capacitance is a measure of this, equal to the charge that must be added to such a system to raise its electrical potential by one unit.
