Capacitor: The capacitors are accumulators of electric charges consist of two conductors (said armor) separated by an insulator (dielectric).

Electrostatic capacity: constant relationship between the position of a conductor and its potential. In the case of a capacitor the capacity expresses the ratio between the charge present on each armature and the potential difference between the plates. The capacity depends on the geometric shape of the conductor.


















Emile Girardeaugirardeau

Marconi believed in short waves before anyone else, before the experts, before the amateurs; and he never stopped dedicating himself to them even while others continued to pay no attention.
