The image of capacitance is shown below.

To compute for capacitance, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are **Charge (Q) **and **Voltage (V).**

The formula for calculating capacitance:

C = ^{Q} / _{V}

Where;

C = Capacitance

Q = Charge

V = Voltage

Let’s solve an example;

Find the capacitance when the charge is 12 and the voltage is 6.

This implies that;

Q = Charge = 12

V = Voltage = 6

C = ^{Q} / _{V}

C = ^{12} / _{6}

C = 2

Therefore, the **capacitance **is **2 farad.**

**Calculating the Charge when the Capacitance and the Voltage is Given.**

Q = CV

Where;

Q = Charge

C = Capacitance

V = Voltage

Let’s solve an example;

Find the charge when the capacitance is 10 and the voltage is 5.

This implies that;

C = Capacitance = 10

V = Voltage = 5

Q = CV

Q = 10(5)

Q = 50

Therefore, the **charge **is **50.**
