## Capacitor Voltage Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Capacitor Voltage.

Vc = Q / C

Variables:

- Where Vc is the Capacitor Voltage (volts)
- Q is the total charge stored (C)
- C is the total capacitance (F)

To calculate capacitor voltage, divide the total charge stored by the total capacitance.

## How to Calculate Capacitor Voltage?

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed in order to calculate the Capacitor Voltage.

**Example Problem #1:**

- First, determine the total charge stored (C). In this example, the total charge stored (C) is measured to be 50.
- Next, determine the total capacitance (F). For this problem, the total capacitance (F) is calculated to be 3.
- Finally, calculate the Capacitor Voltage using the formula above:

Vc = Q / C

Inserting the values from above into the equation yields:

Vc = 50 / 3 = 16.666 (volts)

**Example Problem #2: **

Using the same process as the first example, define the variables outlined by the formula. In this case, these values are:

total charge stored (C) = 43

total capacitance (F) = 6

Entering these values into the formula or calculator above gives us::

Vc = 43 / 6 = 7.166 (volts)
