The capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor without any medium between its plates is given by When a dielectric completely fills the space between the plates of the capacitor, the capacitance increases K times, where K is the dielectric constant (relative permitivity) of the dielectric. If a dielectric slab of thickness t (<d) is introduced … Continue reading EFFECT OF DIELECTRIC IN A CAPACITOR

The mechanism of operation in a capacitor

The DC doesnt flow through capacitor. I thought it was because the electrons jus get saturated on one side and are lost on other side, such that it can’t take or give up anymore or plausibly due to voltage developed across it whereas in AC as directions keep changing, saturation doesnt occur. But it if [...]
