What does a capacitor do?
Has the capacity to store charge and enegy.

What is the capacity of a capacitor?
C = Q/V

What is the capacity of a parallel plate capacitor?
C = Aε/d

If inside of a capacitor distance "d" between two plates is made smaller, what happens to the Capacity?
Increases

What is the unit for Capacitors?
C/V aka Farad









What is the equation for Spherical Capacitors?
 1
 k(1/R_{inner}  1/R_{outer})

What is the equation for Cylindrical Capacitors?
 L
 2k ln(R_{large}/R_{small})
R is the Radius

What would increase the capacitance of a parallel plate?
Move the plates closer together

If the voltage between the plates of a parallel plate capacitor is doubled, the charge on the capacitor does what?
Double
