PH0879 Parallel Plate Capacitor Demonstration
To study the principle of capacitance, its relationship with charge and voltage, its dependence on surface area of conductors and dielectric medium between two plates. It consists of 120mm circular metal discs mounted on insulated supports that slide on a extruded aluminium section to adjust the distance between the two discs. This distance can be easily known by reading their respective positions along the scale fixed on the aluminium section. Supplied with three different dielectric materials - glass, cardboard, and lucite.
