The capacitance of a parallel-plate capacitor does not depend on: area of the plates medium between the plates distance between the plates the material of which the plates are made

    the formula for capacitance C of a paralle-plate capacitor, is: \[\Large C = {\varepsilon _0}\frac{S}{d}\] where S is the surface of each plate, and d is the distance between those plates. \epsilon_zero is a constant

    Ohh ok! So would it be the material of which the plates are made? because everything else you need to find out

    or the area of the plates? sorry just a little confused

    oops, more precisely, if inside a capacitor there is a medium, with doelectric constant \epsilon_r, then the capacitance is: \[\Large C = {\varepsilon _0}{\varepsilon _r}\frac{S}{d}\]

    I think the material of which the plates are made
