How much charge is stored in a capacitor?
Two metal plates plus a dielectric substance make up a capacitor. The metal plates are parallel, but the dielectric lies between them to prevent them from touching.
is the charge on the capacitor,
is the capacitance of the capacitor,
is the voltage applied across the capacitor.
3. When a voltage is placed across two parallel plate capacitors, one produces a positive charge and the other produces a negative charge.
4. The amount of charge generated on the capacitor is determined by the voltage applied.
