Instruction

1

To find the

Q=UC, where:

Q –

U is the voltage source voltage, in volts,

C is the capacitance

Note that the above formula determines the amount of the

**charge****of the capacitor**connected to the DC voltage source, multiply the capacity**of the capacitor**to the voltage value, i.e. use the formula:Q=UC, where:

Q –

**the charge****of the capacitor**, in coulombs,U is the voltage source voltage, in volts,

C is the capacitance

**of the capacitor**, in farads.Note that the above formula determines the amount of the

**charge**and a fully charged**capacitor**. But as**charge**ka**of the capacitor**is fast enough, then practice using this pattern.2

The supply voltage can be measured with a voltmeter. To do this, switch the mode to measure DC voltage and connect the terminals of the device to the power source. Record the readings in volts.

To know the capacity

1 µf=10-6 f 1 pF = 10-12 F.

Sometimes used and the intermediate unit capacity – nanofarad equal to one billionth of a Farad.

1 nF = 10-9 F.

**of the condenser**can read the markings on its body. Note that the unit of capacitance Farad (f) is very large, so in practice is rarely used. To denote capacitors are used in smaller units. This MFD (UF), equal to one millionth Farad and picofarad (pF), equal to one millionth of a microfarad.1 µf=10-6 f 1 pF = 10-12 F.

Sometimes used and the intermediate unit capacity – nanofarad equal to one billionth of a Farad.

1 nF = 10-9 F.

4

If the capacitor is small, the capacity is indicated using callouts.

Carefully read the label

For example, the inscription of "60" would mean a capacity of 60 pF.

Carefully read the label

**of the capacitor**, paying attention to its color.If the condenser are just two digits, it is his capacity in picofarads.For example, the inscription of "60" would mean a capacity of 60 pF.
