Capacitors is a lecture and an article describing the electronics and electricity of capacitors.

You are free to take this quiz based on the lecture/article capacitors at any time.

To improve your score, read and study the lecture, the links contained within, listed under See also, External links, and in the {{charge ontology}}, {{repellor vehicle}} and {{technology resources}} template. This should give you adequate background to get 100 %.

As a "learning by doing" resource, this quiz helps you to assess your knowledge and understanding of the information, and it is a quiz you may take over and over as a learning resource to improve your knowledge, understanding, test-taking skills, and your score.

Suggestion: Have the lecture available in a separate window.

To master the information and use only your memory while taking the quiz, try rewriting the information from more familiar points of view, or be creative with association.

Enjoy learning by doing!

Quiz[edit | edit source]


1 Yes or No, Capacitance is a property of an electric circuit or its element that permits it to store charge.


2 True or False, Variations in electronic usage can be achieved with the same power.


3 Yes or No, In a capacitor, the voltage depends on the amount of charge left in the capacitor


4 Evidence that demonstrates that a model or idea for capacitors is feasible is called a

5 Yes or No, Current is the rate of flow of charge.


6 Complete the text:

If you place two

plates near each other, with an insulator (known as a

) in between, and you

one plate positively and the other negatively, there will be a uniform

field between them.

7 True or False, Q is the charge stored by the capacitor.


8 Complete the text:

Any capacitor, unless it is

altered, has a


9 Yes or No, The rate of change of charge depends on the initial value of the charge itself.


10 True or False, If charge is stored, it can also be released by reconnecting the circuit.


Hypotheses[edit | edit source]

  1. Questions appropriately asked in a quiz help to narrow down the capacitors limitations.
