On what parameters does capacitance normally depend? When a capacitor is fully charged in an RC circuit what current exists in it?


On what parameters does capacitance normally depend? When a capacitor is fully charged in an RC circuit what current exists in it?


Step 1

The parameters that the capacitance of a capacitor depends on are the spacing between the plates of the capacitor, the area of the plates of the capacitor and the dielectric material in the capacitor if any.

Step 2

In the case of a parallel plate capacitor,


Here, C is the capacitance, A is the area of the plates and d is the distan...
