Capacitor Energy Calculator is a easy to use tool that finds the energy stored in a capacitor in no time. You just need to enter the values charge or capacitance, applied voltage in input field and click on the calculate button to obtain the Energy Stored in a Capacitor in a fraction of seconds.

**Capacitor Energy Calculator: **Do you want to calculate
the charge accumulated in the condensor? if so, make use of the handy
tool i.e. Capacitor Energy Calculator and determine the energy stored in
a capacitor easily. Proceed reading the further modules to be aware of
the capacitor energy equation, worked out examples on finding the energy
stored in capacitor, charge or applied voltage, etc.

Capacitor is a commonly used electronic components in the circuits. Basically its function is to store electrical charge. In Parallel Plates Capacitors Charges of Equal but Opposite Values are present on adjacent plates. These charges generate electric field between them and includes a certain amount of circuit's energy.

If you want to estimate the Energy E stored in a Capacitor having
Capacitance C and Applied Voltage then it is given by the equation
**E = 1/2 * C * V²**. You can rewrite this equation by
applying the basic capacitance formula C = Q*V to get the other
analogous form of capacitance equation i.e.
**E = 1/2 * Q² / C** or **E = 1/2 * Q * V**

**Energy in a Capacitor Example**

If the capacitance of a capacitor is 60 F charged to a potential of 130 V, Calculate the energy stored in it.

**Solution:**

Given that

Capacitance = 60F

Applied Voltage = 130V

We know the formula for Energy Stored E = 1/2 * C * V²

Substituting the input values we get the equation as E = 1/2*60*130²

E = 507 KJ

Physicscalc.Com has got concepts like friction, acceleration due to gravity, water pressure, gravity, and many more along with their relevant calculators all one under one roof.

Below are the several applications of capacitor energy. They are in the following way

- A Defribillator uses the energy stored in a capacitor.
- Audio equipment, camera flashes, uninterruptible power supplies, pulsed loads such as magnetic coils and lasers uses capacitor energy.
- Super Capacitors stores large amount of energy and supposts several technological possibilities.

**1. How to Calculate the Energy Stored in a Capacitor?**

Energy Stored in a Capacitor can be found by multiplying the capacitance with square of applied voltage and then dividing the product with 2.

**2. What is the Energy Stored in a Capacitor Formula?**

The Formula for Energy Stored in a Capacitor is E = 1/2 * C * V²

**3. Does a Capacitor store Charge or Energy?**

Capacitors don't store charge and stores energy in it.
