This physics tutorial provides a basic introduction into capacitors. It explains the concept of capacitance and how it works. It also discusses the working principle of capacitors. This video contains plenty of examples and practice problems for you to work on. Here is a list of topics.

1. What is a capacitor?

2. Capacitors are made of two metal conductors separated by an insulator such as air, quartz, mica, or even water

3. Electric Charge, Capacitance and Voltage

4. The unit of electric charge is the coulomb

5. Common Units of Capacitance - Farads, uF, nF, pF

6. Capacitance - Charge Efficiency - Coulomb per volt

7. Electric Potential - Potential Energy Per Unit Charge

8. Voltage vs Electric Potential

9. Calculating Electric Charge Given Excess Number of Electrons

10. Calculating The Number of Protons and Electrons Giving Total Charge on Metal

11. Parallel Plate Capacitor Formula

12. Relationship Between Capacitance, Area, and Distance

13. Permittivity of Free Space Constant

14. Dielectrics, Capacitance and Voltage Relationship

15. Calculating the New Capacitance and Voltage When Dielectric Constant / Insulator is Used

16. Electric Field of Parallel Plate Capacitor

17. Surface Charge Density, Electric Field, Total Charge, and Area Calculations

18. Capacitance Equation / Formula Derivation

19. Potential Energy Stored in a Capacitor

20. Energy Density inside Electric Field Between Parallel Plate Capacitor

21. Capacitors - How it works

22. Explaining the concept of charging capacitors - using electron flow and charge accumulation

23. Discharging a capacitor explained - Electron flows until a state of equilibrium is achieved.

Tried out the canvas response option on @SpiralEducation & it's so awesome! Add text or drawings AND annotate an image! #R10tech

Using @SpiralEducation in class for math review. Student approved! Thumbs up! Thanks.

Absolutely amazing collaboration from year 10 today. 100% engagement and constant smiles from all #lovetsla #spiral

Students show better Interpersonal Writing skills than Speaking via @SpiralEducation Great #data #langchat folks!
