Thickness of capacitor plates

  1. Nov 9, 2008 #1
    How does the thickness of the capacitor plates affect capacitance when the distance between the plates are comparable to the thickness of the individual plates?

    It doesn't effect the capacitance, but it does effect the effective series resistance.
