# Capacitance

ability of a body to store an electrical charge per unit change in potential (general concept)
Capacitor

Capacitance is the ability of a body to store electric charge. A common device to do such task is a capacitor. The SI unit for capacitance is farad.

${\displaystyle C={\frac {Q}{V}}}$

Where Q is the charge in the object and V is voltage across that object.
