Who invented the capacitor?



Answer:
(m)

Capacitance is measured in farads (abbreviated F), named after Michael Faraday, the great chemist who invented the capacitor in the 1800s.
In October 1745, Ewald Georg von Kleist of Pomerania invented the first recorded capacitor: a glass jar coated inside and out with metal.
Pieter van Musschenbroek (1692 - 1791) and his
assistants Allmand and Cunaeus from the Netherlands invented the 'capacitor'

In October 1745, Ewald Georg von Kleist of Pomerania invented the first recorded capacitor: a glass jar coated inside and out with metal. The inner coating was connected to a rod that passed through the lid and ended in a metal sphere. By having this thin layer of glass insulation (a dielectric) between two large, closely spaced plates, von Kleist found the energy density could be increased dramatically compared with the situation with no insulator.

In January 1746, before Kleist's discovery became widely known, a Dutch physicist Pieter van Musschenbroek independently invented a very similar capacitor. It was named the Leyden jar, after the University of Leyden where van Musschenbroek worked. Daniel Gralath was the first to combine several jars in parallel into a "battery" to increase the total possible stored charge.
Leyden. The "Leyden" jar was the first device used to demonstrate the capacitive effect.
The science was determined by Faraday who defined many laws of electronics in particular Faraday's laws of electrolysis. All capacitors are rated in `farads' which is the SI unit of electrolytic capacitance. The patents for different types of capacitor are many but who the first was I do not know.
Faraday
I did, and I'm really tired of you hacks using my invention.
