Displacement Current Calculator Input Values
Electric field change in the capacitor plates (dE) V/m [Volt per metre]
Area of capacitor plate (A) m2 [square metre]
Electric permittivity of free space (ε0) C2/N·m2
Time elapsed (dt) s [second]

Please note that the formula for each calculation along with detailed calculations are available below. As you enter the specific factors of each displacement current calculation, the Displacement Current Calculator will automatically calculate the results and update the Physics formula elements with each element of the displacement current calculation. You can then email or print this displacement current calculation as required for later use.
