Capacitor Charge Formula
Below is the capacitor charge formula for a capacitor in a DC circuit. Before we discuss the capacitor charge formula, let's define what a capacitance (C) is.
Definition of capacitance (C)
Capacitance (C) is defined as the charge stored per unit potential difference.
The formula for the capacitor charge is as follows.
where:
The combination rules for capacitors in DC circuits
In series, another useful formula for capacitors in DC circuits is:
The combination rule for capacitors is that in series the combined capacitance (C) of two capacitors in series is given by the above formula for capacitors.
In parallel, the combined capacitance (C) formula is:
