```Capacitor
A circuit element that stores electric energy and electric charges
A capacitor always consists of two separated metals, one
stores +q, and the other stores –q. A common capacitor
is made of two parallel metal plates.
Capacitance is defined as: C=q/V (F); Farad=Colomb/volt
Capacitanc e only depends on the physical dimension of a capacitor : C 

Once the geometry of a capacitor is determined, the
capacitance (C) is fixed (constant) and is independent of
voltage V. If the voltage is increased, the charge will increase
to keep q/V constant
Application: sensor (touch screen, key board), flasher, defibrillator, rectifier,
random access memory RAM, etc.
Capacitor: cont.
• Because of insulating dielectric materials between the
plates, i=0 in DC circuit, i.e. the braches with Cs can be
replaced with open circuit.
• However, there are charges on the plates, and thus voltage
across the capacitor according to q=Cv.
• i-v relationship:
i = dq/dt = C dv/dt
• Solving differential equation needs an initial condition
• Energy stored in a capacitor: WC =1/2 CvC(t)2

WL = ½ LiL2(t)
In DC circuit, can be replaced
with short circuit
Sinusoidal waves
• Why sinusoids: fundamental
waves, ex. A square can be
constructed using sinusoids
with different frequencies
(Fourier transform).
• x(t)=Acos(wt+f)
• f=1/T cycles/s, 1/s, or Hz

It is convenient to use root-mean-square or
rms quantities to indicate relative strength of
ac signals rather than the magnitude of the ac
signal.

Phasor
How can an ac quantity be represented by a complex number?
Acos(wt+)=Re(Aej(wt+))=Re(Aejwtej )
Since Re and ejwt always exist, for simplicity
Acos(wt+)  AejA Phasor representation
Any sinusoidal signal may be mathematically represented in one of two
ways: a time-domain form
v(t) = Acos(wt+)
and a frequency-domain (or phasor) form
V(jw) = AejA
In text book, bold uppercase quantity indicate phasor voltage or currents
Note the specific frequency w of the sinusoidal signal, since this is not
explicit apparent in the phasor expression
