So the question is now then,

We

where, $Q=$ charge stored in the capacitors, in coulombs($Q$)

$V=$ potential difference between the plates, measured in volt($V$)

$C=$ capacitance, measured in farad($F$)

Now, we can plot the

Then, the energy stored in the capacitor is the work done to store the charge on the capacitor at the applied p.d. and is given by,$$E=\frac{1}{2}VQ=\frac{1}{2}CV^{2}$$

where, $Q=$ charge stored in the capacitors, in coulombs($Q$)

$V=$ potential difference between the plates, measured in volt($V$)

$E=$ Energy stored, in Joules($J$)

The above relation is given by finding the area under the curve. So, Energy in the

**How much energy is stored in the capacitors?**We

**know from the previous section that the charge stored in the capacitors is given by,$$Q=CV$$**where, $Q=$ charge stored in the capacitors, in coulombs($Q$)

$V=$ potential difference between the plates, measured in volt($V$)

$C=$ capacitance, measured in farad($F$)

Now, we can plot the

**Potential difference****vs****Charge***$V$***(i.e.***to check that its a**)**$Q$***vs****straight line**as follows,Then, the energy stored in the capacitor is the work done to store the charge on the capacitor at the applied p.d. and is given by,$$E=\frac{1}{2}VQ=\frac{1}{2}CV^{2}$$

where, $Q=$ charge stored in the capacitors, in coulombs($Q$)

$V=$ potential difference between the plates, measured in volt($V$)

$E=$ Energy stored, in Joules($J$)

The above relation is given by finding the area under the curve. So, Energy in the

*Here, a wonderful video of the energy stored in the capacitors. The reason for $\frac{1}{2}$ in the formula is also explained intuitively in the video, enjoy!!*
