Capacitance, abbreviated as C or CAP, is the ability to hold an electric charge.

 

Capacitance Formulas

\(\large{  C = \frac{  Q }{ V }  }\) 
Symbol English Metric
\(\large{ C }\) = capacitance \(\large{F}\) \(\large{\frac{s^4-A^2}{kg-m^2}}\)
\(\large{ Q }\) = electrical charge that is stored on the capacitor \(\large{C}\) \(\large{A-s}\)
\(\large{ V }\) = potential difference (the voltage between the capacitor's plates) \(\large{V}\) \(\large{\frac{kg-m^2}{s^{3}-A}}\)
