QUESTION: 25

What happens to the current flow in a fully charged capacitor?

Solution:

When a capacitor is fully charged, it does not store any more charge. There is no change in charge with time. Current is the rate of change of charge, hence it becomes zero, or stops.

QUESTION: 26

For high frequencies of alternating current, capacitor acts as?

Solution:

Capacitive impedance is inversely proportional to frequency. Hence at very high frequencies, the impedance is almost equal to zero, hence it acts as a short circuit and there is no voltage across it.

QUESTION: 27

For very low frequencies of alternating current, capacitor acts as?

Solution:

Capacitive impedance is inversely proportional to frequency. Hence at very low frequencies the impedance is almost infinity and hence acts as an open circuit and no current flows through it.

Solution:

Mica capacitors are preferred for high frequency circuits because they have low ohmic losses and less reactance.

QUESTION: 29
