This lesson teaches the basic units of measurement, terms, and factors applicable to capacitors. It also teaches the
equations and how to apply them for solving for working voltages, Eapp, Q, t, EC, and ER.
TERMINAL LEARNING OBJECTIVE
You will select the definitions for the basic units of measurement, terms, and factors
applicable to capacitors. Also you will be required to solve for problems in working
voltages, Eapp, Q, t, EC, and ER.
You will have this subcourse booklet for self-paced study. All information required
is contained in the subcourse.
To demonstrate competency of this task, you must achieve a minimum of 70% on the
This subcourse is designed in a frame format. Each page consists of at least one
frame with a left and right side. The right side of a frame contains the lesson
information and a question or statement with a blank space. The left side contains
the answer to the previous frames question or statement. In an electronic circuits, a
capacitor is used to block DC voltages, pass AC voltages, or a combination of both.
