    An excellent explanation of capacitor action.

    Succeeded in filling this particular void in my understanding whereas other literature were only succeeding in expanding it.

    Difficult to pin-point exactly which part made my mind 'click' however the visual aids relating an increase/decrease in voltage change to current magnitude and direction was simply superb.

    I am new at understanding capacitors and how they work I was hoping for someone to explain to me a problem in which I 'm trying to solve, I have an objective 1.) use a varible to represent a physical quantity. 2.) Given an equation , insert numerical values for the varibles. 3.) Solve for a single unknown in an equation. 4.) use scientific notation. example A 5 uF capacitor has 5x10-4th power coulombs of charge stored on its plates find the voltage across the capacitor. Can anyone help me with this ?

    hi william,

    i believe the answer to your query lies in the capacitor topic.

    as to your item 4., this are the formulas involve:

    Q = IT

    Q = CV

    V = Q/C

    Q - charge in coulombs
    C - capacitance in Farad
    V - potential difference across the capacitor in Volts
    I - current in Amperes
    T - time is Seconds
