A capacitor can store energy in the form of potential energy in an

electric field. In this chapter we'll discuss the capacity of conductors

to hold charge and energy.

When a conductor is charged its potential increases. It is found that for an isolated conductor (conductor

should be of finite dimension, so that potential of infinity can be assumed to be zero) potential of the

conductor is proportional to charge given to it.

in electric field of conductor is called self energy or self potential energy of conductor
