If you were asked to design a capacitor in which small size and large capacitance were required, what would be the two most
important factors in your design?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Image Transcriptionclose

The capacitance is given by, KEGA k is the dielectric constant. ɛo is the permittivity of free space. A is the area of the plates. • dis the distance of separation between the plates. For the capacitor to have high capacitance, the dielectric medium present between the plates must have high dielectric constant. The plates must also be kept very closer to each other. The area of the plates must be large.
