# Distance Between Plates in Parallel Plate Capacitor. Online Calculator.

## An online calculator for calculating the distance between the plates in a flat (parallel-plate) capacitor helps you to calculate the distance between the plates if the electrical capacity and area of the plate are known, as well as if the area of the plate, voltage and charge on the plate are known. The calculator calculates and gives you a detailed solution. Units of measurement can include any SI prefixes. The calculator automatically converts one SI prefix to another.

Distance between plates in a parallel plate capacitor calculator (if the electrical capacity and the area of the plate are known)

A parallel plate capacitor consists of two parallel conducting plates separated by a dielectric, located at a small distance from each other.

The distance between the plates in a parallel plate capacitor is determined by the formula, where
ε0 – vacuum permittivity, ε0 = 8.85418781762039 × 10-12
ε – permittivity of dielectric
S - Area of one plate (it is assumed that the plates are the same)
C - capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor

The SI unit of distance is metre (m).
Permittivity ε =
Area of one plate (it is assumed that the plates are the same) S =
Capacitance C =
The SI unit of distance d
