# Capacitance Formula

Capacitance is used to describe how much charge any conductor can hold. It represents the ratio of the charge flowing across the conductor to the potential applied. Capacitors are the conductors used for holding charges.

Capacitance is the ability of a substance to store an electrical charge. Any object that can be electrically charged shows capacitance.

Capacitance Formula is expressed as

C = Q / V

Where,

Q denotes the charge of the conductor,

V denotes the potential applied across the conductor and

C is proportionality constant, called capacitance

If the capacitors are connected in series, the capacitance formula is expressed by

If capacitors are connected in parallel, the capacitance formula is expressed by

Where C1,C2,C3…….Cn are the capacitors and Capacitance is expressed in Farads
