Parallel Plate Capacitor Calculator



This calculator returns the capacitance between two parallel conducting plates, separated by a layer of dielectric. The dielectric can be air (Er = 1) or some other medium.

The calculations do not include the effects of fringing, which lead to a small additional capacitance. If the plate separation is small compared to the plate area, this effect will be small.
