#### Defination / Uses

The ability of a capacitor to store energy in an electric field is referred to as capacitance. An electronic component known as a capacitor is used to store this energy. The symbol 'C' is used to represent capacitance. The capacitance C and the voltage differential V applied across the capacitor determine the amount charged. When a constant voltage is applied to the capacitor, it creates a pair of plates.

#### How capacitance calculator is helpfull

Capacitance is the attribute of a capacitor, which is an electrical component that can store charge. According to the formula above, a higher capacitance value equals a higher stored charge value. Many applications use a capacitor, which is one of the three basic circuit components along with the resistor and inductor. It's normally utilized as an energy storage device and a component in filters and oscillators.

Estimating the capacitance of any capacitor is not difficult. You just required electrical charge and potential difference to get accurate answer OR use the given formula to calculate manually.
