Physics 201- Introduction to Electricity & Magnetism
October 7- Capacitor Networks

 

 

 

 
 

 

  A few exercises-

A storage capacitor on a RAM chip has a capacitance of 55fF.  If it is charged to 5.3V, how many excess electrons are there on its negative plate?
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

You have two flat metal plates, each of area 1m2, with which to construct a parallel-plate capacitor.  If its capacitance is to be 1F, what must be the separation between the plates?
