capacitance

Capacitance is the ability of a body to store an electrical charge. Any body or structure that is capable of being charged, either with static electricity? or by an electric current, exhibits capacitance. A common form of energy storage device is a parallel-plate capacitor?. In a parallel plate capacitor, capacitance is directly proportional? to the surface area of the conductor plates and inversely proportional? to the separation distance between the plates.
