How a Capacitor Discharge

How does a capacitor work? When a capacitor is connected across a power source, it starts charging up as current flows in the circuit.   Initially when the capacitor has not stored any charge,...

Capacitance

What is a capacitor?   A capacitor is an electrical component that stores charge. It is usually made by having two parallel plates thinly separated by an insulating material. This material is also known...

Work done in a Capacitor

Capacitor is an electrical component that stores charge. As charges are stored, potential energy in the capacitor also increases. In this post, I would like to explain how to calculate the energy stored in...
