Capacitor calculator | Capacitance calculator
This page covers capacitor calculator used to calculate capacitance. This capacitor calculator takes surface area, distance between plates and dielectric as input and calculates capacitance as output. The capacitor formula used for the capacitance calculator is also mentioned.
EXAMPLE of capacitor calculator:
INPUTS: K = 2.53, A = 0.5 mm2 , D = 0.005 mm
OUTPUT: Capacitance = 2.24 x 10-12 farads or 2.24 PF
Capacitor formula used for capacitor calculator
Following equation or formula is used for this capacitor calculator.
C = K * Eo * A/D
K = Dielectric constant of material, refer table-1 and table-2 below to select numeric value as per material
Eo = 8.854 x 10-12
A = Overlapping surface area of the plates
D = Distance between the plates
