1. Why is capacitance a geometrical property?

Open | Responses: 2

We have seen since our school that capacitance is a geometrical property. It depends on the structure of the two electrodes. But why is it so. Can anyone shed some light on it?

2. Circuit Elements

17 Feb 2012 | Tools | Contributor(s): Emmanuel Jose Ochoa, Stella Quinones

Understand the dependence of resistance, R, inductance, L, and capacitance, C, on physical dimensions and material properties.
