2 Capacitor an electronic device which consists of two conductive plates separated by an insulator

3 Capacitor an electronic device which consists of two conductive plates separated by an insulator value, capacitance, is proportional to the surface area of the plates and inversely proportional to the distance between the plates

4 Capacitor an electronic device which consists of two conductive plates separated by an insulator value, capacitance, is proportional to the surface area of the plates and inversely proportional to the distance between the plates measured in Farads

5 Capacitor an electronic device which consists of two conductive plates separated by an insulator value, capacitance, is proportional to the surface area of the plates and inversely proportional to the distance between the plates measured in Farads Farads are big

6 Capacitor an electronic device which consists of two conductive plates separated by an insulator value, capacitance, is proportional to the surface area of the plates and inversely proportional to the distance between the plates measured in Farads Farads are big usually microfarad (µf) or picofarad (pf) values are used

11 purpose is to store electrical charge.

12 purpose is to store electrical charge. current starts large, voltage starts at zero

13 purpose is to store electrical charge. current starts large, voltage starts at zero as charge is stored, voltage increases and current decreases until the voltage equals the applied voltage, when current becomes zero

14 A capacitor s voltage may not exceed the maximum for which it is rated. Big capacitors often have low maximum voltages.

15 A capacitor s voltage may not exceed the maximum for which it is rated. Big capacitors often have low maximum voltages. Capacitors may retain charge long after power is removed.

16 A capacitor s voltage may not exceed the maximum for which it is rated. Big capacitors often have low maximum voltages. Capacitors may retain charge long after power is removed. For safety, large capacitors should be discharged before handling.

17 A capacitor s voltage may not exceed the maximum for which it is rated. Big capacitors often have low maximum voltages. Capacitors may retain charge long after power is removed. For safety, large capacitors should be discharged before handling. Place 1kΩ 1kΩ resistor across the terminals to discharge.

18 A capacitor s voltage may not exceed the maximum for which it is rated. Big capacitors often have low maximum voltages. Capacitors may retain charge long after power is removed. For safety, large capacitors should be discharged before handling. Place 1kΩ 1kΩ resistor across the terminals to discharge. High voltage capacitors should be stored with terminals shorted.
