Capacitor: Construction and Working

Today we are going to learn about another important passive electronic component. In our previous article, we have learned about the resistor, now we will talk in detail about a capacitor. Electronic components are of 2 types, active components, and passive components. Transistors, tunnel diodes are active components while resistors, capacitors etc are passive components. What is Capacitor A Capacitor can be defined as A capacitor is a two-terminal passive device used to store energy in the form of an electric charge. It is comprised of two parallel plates which are separated from each other either by air or by …
