## Main Question or Discussion Point

Just wondering if the formula C=εA/d is a realistic formula for a parallel plate capacitor, surely its making an approximation about the plates being HUGE or that at the edges the electric field doesn't go in nice straight lines from one plate to the other?

If it is an approximation does anyone know the more accurate formula
