Static dielectric constant

Static dielectric constant

Definition: The ratio of the capacitance of a given capacitor (with the material filling the entire space between its plates) to the capacitance of the same capacitor in vacuum is called static dielectric constant or relative permittivity of the material.

A dielectric is characterized by its dielectric constant which is also called relative permittivity.
