IOE Entrance Physics Part I: Capacitor.

Welcome to Nepal Engineering Services.

Every conductor has capacity to store charges, and the conductor that stores both positive and negative charges is called capacitor. It is also called condenser.

Capacitance=(Magnitude of charge on plate/Potential difference between the plates)

Parallel Plate Capacitors:
Parallel plate capacitors are a type of capacitors which have two plates(electrodes) and dielectric(insulating material). The two plates are equal in size and parallel to each other with certain gap filled with dielectric. 

Electric field between parallel plate capacitors 
=  (σ/2εo)+(σ/εo)



Spherical Capacitor(Concentric Spheres):

For single Sphere:


Combination of Capacitors:

1) Series Capacitors:
  •  Charge remains same in all capacitors.
  • Potential difference is different in each capacitor.

 2) Parallel Capacitors:


  • Charge is different in each capacitor
  • Potential difference is same in each capacitor.
Energy Stored in Capacitor:
  = Q
  = QV/2

Energy Density: E=V/d

Cylindrical Capacitor:
C = \dfrac{2 \pi \epsilon_0 \epsilon_r L }{\log_e \left( \dfrac{R_2}{R_1}\right)} F

Some questions asked in IOE entrance exams are:
