The total capacitance of a circular parallel plate capacitor including edge effect, can be calculated using the following equation which is derived from Kirchhoff's equation for a circular capacitor.

Where:

r is the Radius in mm

ε_{r} is the Relative Dielectric Constant

d is the Dielectric thickness in mm

d << r

The calculator can be used to check results obtained with the Accurate Method for Measuring Relative Dielectric Constant of a PCB Using a Vector Network Analyser
