Unit 6

Inductance and Capacitance

Two very important electronic properties are inductance and capacitance. This unit discusses these properties and inductors and capacitors. Time-constant circuits, which rely on inductance and capacitance also are discussed.

UNIT OBJECTIVES

1. Explain how a capacitor operates.

2. Solve RC time-constant problems.

3. Define inductance and inductors.

4. Define capacitance and capacitors.

5. List the factors determining capacitance.

6. Describe the construction of various types of capacitors.

7. Solve RC time-constant problems.

8. Calculate total capacitance of capacitors in various series, parallel, and combination configurations.

9. Calculate total inductance of inductors in various series, parallel, and combination configurations. ...
