(electronics) An electronic component capable of storing electrical energy in an electric field; especially one consisting of two conductors separated by a dielectric.
a device used in electronic circuits to hold electrical charge, consisting of two conducting plates separated by a nonconducting (dielectric) medium; it is characterized by its capacitance.
an electrical device characterized by its capacity to store an electric charge
a device used to store an electric charge, consisting of one or more pairs of conductors separated by an insulator.
A capacitor is a device that stores electrical energy in an electric field. It is a passive electronic component with two terminals.
