Formula name

PARALLEL CAPACITOR

Description

parallel plate capacitor

Syntax

/*A: area of each of the two conducting plates */
/* d: distance between the two plates */
/* ε: permittivity of the dielectric separating the two plates, multiplied with ε0, the permittivity of the vacuum */
/* capacitance C*/
C = A*ε /d
/* voltage U between plates */
U = d*Q/(ε*A)
/* electric field strength E between plates */
...

Notes

A parallel plate capacitor consists of two parallel plates separated by a dielectric.
