Dielectric Constant

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Constants

Dielectric constant, abbreviated as \(\epsilon\) (greek symbol epsilon), (measured in farads/meter, F/m) is the measure of a substance to an electric field expressed as the ratio of its electric displacement to the applied field strength.

 

Dielectric Constant formula

\(\large{ \epsilon = \frac{ \epsilon_s }{ \epsilon_0 } }\)   

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ \epsilon }\)  (greek symbol epsilon) = dielectric constant - \(\large{\frac{F}{m}}\) 
\(\large{ \epsilon_s }\) = permittivity of the substance - \(\large{\frac{F}{m}}\) 
\(\large{ \epsilon_0 }\) = permittivity of a vacuum - \(\large{\frac{F}{m}}\)
