Examples from the Web for capacitance
The condenser used in the secondary coil circuit has 14 plates and this is equal to a capacitance of .0004 mfd.
In honeycomb and other stagger wound coils the capacitance is more evenly distributed.
The variable condenser used in series with the aerial wire system has 26 plates and is equal to a capacitance of .0008 mfd.
As the blades of the tuning forks vibrate, the capacitance is alternately increased and decreased by the required amount.LRL Accelerators|Lawrence Radiation Laboratory
The capacitance of a condenser or a circuit depends on its size and form and the voltage of the current that is charging it.
