It is the ability of a body to hold electric charge.
When a conductor is given a charge "Q", it aquires a potential "V" which is proportional to the charge given to it ie.
if we open the proportionallty constant we get
C=Q/V Where C is constant of proportionality and is called the capacitance which is defined as the amount of charge in coulomb necessary to increase the potential of a conductor by 1 volt The S.I unit of the capacitance is Farad. (symbol-F)
