### Capacitance: MCQ ON CAPACITOR

Capacitor is an arrangement of two conductors carrying charges of equal magnitude and opposite sign and separated by an insulating medium.

(i) The net charge on the capacitor as a whole is zero. When we say that acapacitor has a charge Q, we mean that positively charged conductor has a charge +Q and the negatively charged conductor has a charge -Q.

(ii) The positively charged conductor is at a higher potential than negatively charged conductor. The potential difference V between the conductors is proportional to the magnitude of charge Q and the ratio Q/V is known as capacitance C of the capacitor.

(iii) Unit of capacitance is farad (F). The capacitance is usually measured in microfarad (μF)
