A charging station, also called electric vehicle charging station, electric recharging point, charging point, charge point, electronic charging station (ECS), and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), is a machine that supplies electric energy to charge plug-in electric vehicles—including cars, neighborhood electric vehicles, trucks, buses and others.
Some electric vehicles have on-board converters that plug into a standard electrical outlet or a higher voltage outlet. Others use custom charging stations.
Charging stations provide connectors that conform to a variety of standards. For common direct current rapid charging, chargers are equipped with multiple adaptors such as Combined Charging System (CCS), CHAdeMO, and AC fast charging.
Public charging stations are typically found street-side or at retail shopping centers, government facilities and parking areas.

If the statement above is correct, I do not understand this concept. I guess by charging my phone I am not producing matter. Does it mean in this case, energy converts to mass (not matter)? Can someone please explain this?
Question 1:
a. I am aware that the general equation for capacitance is C=Q/V thus Q=CV.
22 μF = 0.000022 or 2.2*10^-5 F
Would the charge stored by equal to Q=2.2*10^-5*12
Thus, Q=2.64*10^-4 C
b. The energy stored by a capacitor is given by E=1/2QV=1/2CV^2=1/2Q^2/C
I think with the information...

So the work done when charging up a capacitor is ##dW=VdQ##
However, when we add a charge ##dQ## to the capacitor, ##V## also changes accordingly, so I was wondering why the work done wasn't written as ##dW=VdQ+QdV## (one that also takes into account t he change in ##V##).
Thanks in advance.
