I'm new to this forum, so forgive me if I am missing something.
I am building a capacitor, and I want to know if stacking dielectric and metal foil will increase the capacitance, and if so
- At what rate will it increase,
- How should this be wired?
- How should I stack it (such as metal/metal/dielecric/metal/metal or metal/dielectric/metal/dielectric or whatever I should do)
[EDIT] : I am using a dielecetric of paper, dielectric value of ~2. I can also use saran wrap.
currently my capacitor is 5 nano-farads, I want to know what to do to bring it up to 40 microfarads. Is this possible?
