Question

A capacitor stores a charge of 30μC when a potential difference of 500 V is applied across it. The capacitance of the capacitor isA capacitor stores a charge of 30μC when a potential difference of 500 V is applied across it. The capacitance of the capacitor is

Options

A) 0.06μF

B) 0.12μF

C) 16.67μF

D) 8.33μF


The correct answer is A.

Explanation:

Q = 30μc = 30 × 10-6
V = 500v
Q = Cv
C = Q/v = (30 × 10-6)/500
= 6 × 10-8 F
= 6 × 10-2 × 10-6 F
= 0.06 × 10-6 F = 0.06μF
