Capacitors are devices that accumulate voltage in separated electric charges, but their mechanism and mathematics can describe thermal insulation and the discharge of lightning from cloud to ground.

The concentric plates of a spherical capacitor have radii \(a=4.1\text{ mm}\) and \(b=4.6\text{ mm}.\) The above diagram shows the cross sectional feature of the capacitor. What is the approximate capacitance of the capacitor?

The value of the permittivity constant is \(\varepsilon_0=8.85 \times 10^{-12} \text{ F/m}.\)
