please explain the correct defination of capacitance???
Google 'define capacitance' and take your pick.
Capacitance is defined as the amount of charge stored for a given potential, quite simply C = Q/V.
Obviously, the reality is more complicated than that, see Volume I - Chapter 13 for a more thorough treatment of the concept of capacitance including a discussion of its origins from the electric field (related to the voltage).
If you have any questions on the above article, feel free to post them up.
