Capacitance of a Parallel Plate Capacitor Calculator
This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. It is to determine the Capacitance of a Parallel Plate Capacitor. In this calculator, C is the capacitance in picofarads, k is the dielectric constant, A is the area of one plate in square inches, d is the depth (thickness) of the dielectric in inches, and N is the number of plates in the capacitor. Enter these values in the appropriate fields and click on Calculate Capacitance. You may click on Clear Values and do another calculation.
