(a) Define the capacitance of a capacitor.

(b) State three factors on which the capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor depends.

(c) Derive a formula for the energy W stored in a charged capacitor of capacitance C carrying a charge Q on either plate.

(d) Two capacitors of capacitance 4\(\mu F\) and 6\(\mu F\) are connected in series to a 100V d.c supply. Draw the circuit diagram and calculate the (i) charge on either plate of each capacitor (ii) p.d. across each capacitor; (iii) energy of the combined capacitors.
