Frequently asked Questions on CBSE Class 12 Physics Notes Chapter 2: Electrostatic Potential and Capacitance
What is a ‘Capacitor’?
Capacitor is a device for storing electrical energy, consisting of two conductors in close proximity and insulated from each other.
What is ‘Superposition’ principle?
The superposition principle states that when two or more waves overlap in space, the resultant disturbance is equal to the algebraic sum of the individual disturbances.
What are the types of ‘Potential energy’?
There are six types of potential energy: mechanical energy, electrical energy, chemical energy, radiant energy, nuclear energy and thermal energy.
