Introduction to Permittivity Calculator

The permittivity of a material is a measure of its ability to resist the formation of an electric field within it. The total permittivity (ε) is the product of the vacuum permittivity 0), which is a constant approximately equal to 8.854187817 × 10-12 F/m (farads per meter), and the relative permittivity or dielectric constant of the material r).

Parameter usage:


Data validation

The relative permittivity must be a positive number representing the comparison to the permittivity of free space.

Practical Applications

Permittivity is a crucial parameter in designing capacitors and understanding the behavior of materials in electric fields, such as in insulation and polarization applications.
