### What is Dielectric Constant?

It is also known as Relative permittivity. If two charges q 1 and q 2 are separated from each other by a small distance r. Then by using the coulombs law of forces the equation formed will be ------------ 2.6 In the above equation ...

### What are parallel plate capacitors?

The mostly used capacitors are Parallel plate capacitors. There are two very small and thin conducting plates placed parallel to each other at a fine distance lets suppose it as d. Two plates must be separated through a medium. So air, glass, paper etc are ...

### What is the principle of capacitor?

A small device used to store huge amount of electric charge in a small room is called capacitor. Take an insulated metal plate A. Charge the plate to its maximum potential. Now take another insulated plate B. Take the ...

### What is Electrical Capacitance?

Electrical conductance of a conductor is defined as the capacity to store charge in it. Whenever charge is applied to an insulator its potential is raised to some certain level. Charge on a conductor and its electric potential are both directly proportional to each other. ...

### What do you mean by Electrostatic Shielding

It is the best way to protect some area in vacuum from the influence of external electric field. As we have proved earlier that the electric field inside a conductor is ...

### What is the behavior of conductors in electrostatic field?

Some of the basic properties of a conductor are shown below: 1. Total charge inside a conductor is zero. Let’s discuss this point clearly. If the net field in the conductor is zero, this means the is 0. So Then So the result obtained from the above equations shows that the ...

### What are insulators and dielectrics?

Those materials which don’t allow the passage of electricity through them are known as insulators. We can call them as the poor conductors of electricity. Some of the common examples of the insulators are rubber, mica wax, glass etc. The reason that the free electron ...

### What are Conductors?

Those substances which have the ability to carry charge from one place to another are called conductors. Silver is one of the best conductors. There are lots of examples of conductors like aluminum, coal, iron, copper, etc. Some conductors are solid and some are liquids. ...
