    C=Q/V and Q=It , hence with a change in the current, I, and with a change in the voltage, V, the capacitance may change. The definition of capacitance is 'the ability of a body to hold an electrical charge'.. when we say that this capacitor has a capacitance of 10mF, we mean that its maximum ability is 10mF, but it can go below that depending on the Q and V.

    look at the "american journal of physics" by camillo cuvaj about capacitor
