A capacitor is a passive two-terminal electrical component that stores electrical energy in an electric field. The effect of a capacitor is known as capacitance. The electrical charge stored in a capacitor is proportional to the potential difference between its terminals. A capacitor is defined as an electrical component that can store an electric charge. The effect of a capacitor is known as capacitance. The charge on a capacitor is directly proportional to the potential difference across its terminals. The unit of capacitance in the International System of Units (SI) is the farad (F), defined as one coulomb per volt. In electrical engineering, a common symbol for capacitance is the lowercase Greek letter "rho" (?). The capacitance of a capacitor is also expressed in farads.

In physics, electric flux is a measure of the quantity of electric charge passing through a surface. It is used in the study of electromagnetic radiation. The SI unit of electric flux is the weber (symbol: Wb). The electric flux through a surface is calculated by dividing the electric charge passing through the surface by the area of the surface, and multiplying by the permittivity of free space (the permittivity of vacuum is used in the case of a vacuum). The electric flux through a closed surface is zero, by Gauss's law.

It is given that each of 3 resisters in this figure has a resistance of 2 and can dissipate a maximum of 32 word without becoming excessively heated. So now we want to calculate the maximum power the circuit can dissipate. So here we have. Resistance of registered is 2.00 and the maximum power dissipated by each resistor without excessively heating is 32 at it. Now, by using the relation we have p is equal to i square r, or we can write it as i equal to square root of p upon r. Now, by putting values here, r is equal to square root of here. Power is 32 watt upon resistance is 2, so we have current equal to 4 ampere, so maximum power dissipated without excessive heating is at. I is equal to 4 ampere. If current exceeds 4 ampere, then the raisers will dissipate more heat. Let us name the steam. Rirastor is r 1 and in the parallel connection, the upper is that is named is r 2 and the lower is named as r 3, when current through r 1 is equal to 4 empire, then going through r, 2 and gonthrough r 3 will be equal to 2 amperes, the sum of current through r, 2 and 3, is equal to the current through r 1 pot. So the power dissipated in r 2 is equal to i square times. R. Here, curent through r 2 is 2 ampere to ampere into resistance is so we have power, dissipated in r 2, equal to l, wat and the power dissipated in r 3 is equal to the circuit of current is here 2 amperes into resents the power dissipation in R 3 is equal to edward, so when r 1 dissipated a power of 32, what then r, 2 and r 3 will dissipate power of, and what is so? The total power is equal to power dissipated by r 1 plus power dissipated by r 2 plus power. Dissipated by r 3 here, power dispatched by r 1 is 32 at plus. Power. Dissipated by r 2 is an wat and power dissipated by r 3 s and what so? By adding these the numbers we get total power, dissipated equal to 40 and water. So this is the power. This is the maximum power. The circuit can dissipate without being accessively heated.
