Capacitor Symbols

Capacitor is an electronic component that stores electric charge. The capacitor is made of 2 close conductors (usually plates) that are separated by a dielectric material. The plates accumulate electric charge when connected to power source. One plate accumulates positive charge and the other plate accumulates negative charge.
The capacitance is the amount of electric charge that is stored in the capacitor at voltage of 1 Volt.
The capacitance is measured in units of Farad (F).
The capacitor disconnects current in direct current (DC) circuits and short circuit in alternating current (AC) circuits.
A capacitor is a device that stores electrical energy in an electric field. It is a passive electronic component with bipolar.
The effect of a capacitor is called capacitance. While some capacities exist between two conductors that are close to each other in the circuit, capacitors are components designed to increase the capacity of the circuit. The original capacitor is called a condenser.
