Cylindrical Capacitor

  1. Oct 16, 2007 #1
    Why is the theoretical capacitance for a cylindrical capacitor (given here http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/electric/capcyl.html) equal to the value measured on the outer shell with the inner grounded using a L-C meter?

    I'm stuck.

    can you describe what you mean? I'm confused why you say the inner is grounded... what do you mean by L-C meter...
