## What is the capacitance of a large Van de Graaff generator’s terminal, given that it stores 8.00 mC of charge at a voltage of 12.0 MV?

To determine

Capacitance of a large Van de Graff generator's terminal.

### Explanation of Solution

Given:

Charge stored by the capacitor =Q=8.00 mC = 8 × 103C

Potential difference across the generator =V=12 MV= 12×106 Volts

Capacitance of the generator =C=?

Formula Used:

Capacitance is given as

C=QV

Calculation:

Capacitance is given as

C=Q
