Answer :

We know that,

Capacitance of a capacitor only depends on shape, size and geometrical placing.

For example:

Capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor is given by


A=area of cross-section of plates

K=dielectric constant

ϵ0=absolute permittivity of medium

d=distance between the plates

It does not depend on charges on the plates

So, The capacitor does depends on the shape and size of the plates and separation between the plates.
