Abstract

A general thermodynamic treatment of electrical condensers is presented which avoids the use of thermodynamically ill defined electrostatic quantities and concepts, and which does not neglect surface effects at the condenser plates. The effects of various dielectric materials and the distance between plates on capacitors properties and behavior were studied.
