Variation of Capacitance of Ceramic Capacitors with Voltage and Temperature

The ceramic capacitors that you work with in the lab have two or more alternating layers of a metal acting as the electrodes and a ceramic acting as the dielectric. The capacitance measured in farad represents the charge stored in a capacitor at a particular applied voltage. The quantity should be a constant for a particular capacitor at all values of applied voltages and temperatures. Capacitor Categories While working with Class I capacitors, you may find that their capacitances do not deviate Read more [...]
