In the space below, draw a circuit showing a battery and a capacitor
connected in series. Indicate, by + and - signs, the polarity of the battery
and the polarity of the charge on the capacitor. Indicate, with arrows, the
direction of the electron flow (charging current).
What is the formula which shows the relationship between capacitance,
charge, and the voltage of a capacitor?
Q = CE
As stated previously in the program, the value of a capacitor is the result of
the actual physical construction of the capacitor at the time of manufacture
. For this reason, we will not solve for the value of a capacitor
using the formula
Solve for the quantity of charge (Q).
C = .10 f
E = 15 volts
