Formula: Plate capacitor

Electrical potential inside / outside a plate capacitor (graph)

Electric potential

Unit
Electric potential between capacitor plates increases linearly with distance \(x\) from one plate to the other.

Electric potential

Unit
Electric potential at the location of the capacitor plate that has the greater potential.

Position

Unit
Any position within the plate capacitor where the potential \(\varphi_x\) is measured.

Voltage

Unit
Voltage between the two capacitor plates.

Plate distance

Unit
Distance between the capacitor plates.
