Dielectric Constant by using capacitance meter

  1. Two circular aluminum isolated plates.
  2. Holder and track for the plates.
  3. Acrylic, wood and glass plates.
  4. Capacitance meter.
  5. Connection cables.


  • In this experiment we can determine the dielectric constant (K) and the permittivity for glass, wood and acrylic sheets.
  • We can study the relation between the thickness of the dielectric material and the capacitance.
