CAPACITORS
Capacitor Theory A capacitor consists of two conductors that are capable of holding an electric charge and which are separated by an insulating medium. A simple capacitor, consisting of two metal plates separated by air, is shown in Fig. 6-22. The air, or some other insulating material, between the plates of a capacitor is called the dielectric. When the plates of a capacitor are connected to a voltage source, the capacitor becomes charged. This charge consists of an excess of electrons on the negative plate and a corresponding deficiency of el…
