The symbol to represent energy density is (u).So it is the total energy stored in the capacitor per unit volume.
So according to the above definition its equation will be:
U= Total Energy(U)/ Volume(v)= ...

During the sharing of charges between the different bodies no net loss of charge takes place. During this process some energy is disappeared in the form of heat. But some amount of energy is scattered in sharing between these charges.Now if we want to calculate ...

Lets take two capacitors having unequal potentials. Connect them through a conducting material such as a copper wire.Then the charge will flow from the conductor having larger amount of charge towards the conductor having less amount of charge. The flow of charge between these conductors ...

Lets us calculate the energy of the series combination first.
As we know that in series combination charge Q is constant. SO each capacitor will be carrying the same amount of charge.So total energy(u) in the combination will be :
= Q2 / 2 [ 1/C1 ...

To understand this concept we have to think that some outside agency is pulling the negatively charged electrons from the positively charged plate of the capacitor and sending them to the negative plate of it. This small amount of work is done by battery. So, ...

Capacitors can be arranged in two different ways.
1. Capacitors in Series
2. Capacitors in Parallel
Capacitors in Series :- Capacitors are said to be in series combination between the two points whenever there will be a single path through which we can reach from one point to another.
You can ...

Consider a Spherical conductor . Mark its center as o and radius r.Give some positive charge say q to charge the conductor. When we will give the charge to the conductor it will start spreading equally over its outer surface. Charge spreading does not depend ...

A spherical conductor consist of all the spherical plates inside it.
Basically the spherical conductors consist of hollow spherical conductor plates having some radius, surrounded by any another sphere. In this case we have chosen two spheres to clarify its structure i.e. Sphere A ...
