Ballistic Galvanometer Lab

  1. Mar 7, 2015 #1
    My question is : What is the absolute capacitance?

    In my electricity lab, I was assigned to prepare a report on measuring absolute capacitance of a capacitor using ballistic galvanometer.
    I am familiar to the term self capacitance but not the absolute one. My mentor asked me to find it out by myself. But I couldn't find any source in the internet to have a precise concept.

    Could anyone please help?

    I think it is just capacitance.
