# What is the capacitance of parallel plate capacitor with different electrode material?

What is the capacitance of parallel plate capacitor with different electrode material? The capacitance of parallel plate capacitor depends on dielectric material, surface area, and separation between two plates.

$$C = ε_r * ε_0 * \frac{A}{D}$$

But how about electrode materials between dielectric, will the capacitance be different? Thanks.

• Are you asking if using aluminum would give you a different capacitance than copper? – LDC3 Mar 29 '14 at 14:46
