Parallel Plate Capacitor Capacitance Calculator
This calculator computes the capacitance between two parallel plates. The first calculator is metric, whereas the second is inches. Small valued capacitors can be etched into a PCB for RF applications, but under most circumstances it is more cost effective to use discrete capacitors. Various dielectric constants are listed below.
K is the dielectric constant of the material,
A is the overlapping surface area of the plates in m2,
d is the distance between the plates in m, and
