Spherical Plate Capacitor

Consider two concentric spherical shells of radius and Let us apply potential difference V across the two spherical plates and capacitor is charged to q.Using Gauss Law, electric field in the gap The potential difference So, So, charge on capacitor So, capacitance

Capacitance and Gauss Law

Capacitor is a device which consists of two parallel plates placed close to each other. It can store charge and hence electrostatic energy. The capacity to store charge is called capacitance.Let us first consider how charge is distributed on a capacitor. If charge and is given to left and right plate respectively, then according to …
