Capacitance
Capacitance is the ability of a body to store an electrical charge
capacitor
A capacitor is a passive two-terminal electrical component used to temporarily store electrical energy in an electric field
fixed capacitor
A capacitor is a passive two-terminal electrical component that stores electric energy in an electric field
alternating current
Alternating current , is an electric current in which the flow of electric charge periodically reverses direction, whereas in direct current , the flow of electric charge is only in one direction
