Physics

The dimensional formula of capacitance is _____. Take $$Q$$ as the dimension formula of charge


ANSWER

$${ M }^{ -1 }{ L }^{ -2 }{ T }^{ 2 }{ Q }^{ 2 }\quad $$


SOLUTION
We know that Capacitance is given as:
$$C=\cfrac { Q }{ V } $$

The voltage is defined as the work done per unit charge.
 $$V=\cfrac { W }{ Q } $$

$$\implies C=\cfrac { { Q }^{ 2 } }{ W } $$
$$C=\cfrac { \left[ { Q }^{ 2 } \right]  }{ \left[ M{ L }^{ 2 }{ T }^{ -2 } \right]  } =\left[ { M }^{ -1 }{ L }^{ -2 }{ T }^{ 2 }{ Q }^{ 2 } \right] $$
