I Would there exist capacitance if the speed of light...

  1. May 2, 2016 #1
    ...were infinite? In other words: is capacitance a reflex of the finitude of the speed of light? Please elaborate.

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    You have to modify electromagnetism somehow to get an infinite speed of light. The answer can depend on how you do that. I guess most natural ways to do it would still keep a capacitance, all you need to keep is some attraction between opposite charges.
