Charge in Capacitors  The relation between the charge in plates and the voltage across a capacitor is given below. q ! Cv 1 !1C V q Linear Nonlinear v Ch06 Capacitors and Inductors 11 .

If the voltage across the capacitor is so large that the field intensity is large enough to break down the insulation of the dielectric. the plate charge increases as the voltage increases. Ch06 Capacitors and Inductors 12 . The electric field intensity between two plates increases. Hence. the capacitor is out of work. every practical capacitor has a maximum limit on its operating voltage.Voltage Limit on a Capacitor  Since q=Cv.

Ch06 Capacitors and Inductors 14 . the capacitor in this case is the same as an open circuit. a capacitor is impossible to have an abrupt change in its voltage except an infinite current is applied. then the current will have an infinite value that is practically impossible. Hence. then i= . a constant voltage across a capacitor creates no current through the capacitor.  If v is abruptly changed.Physical Meaning dv i !C dt + v i C  when v is a constant voltage.
