Medical Definition of capacitance
1a: the property of an electric nonconductor that permits the storage of energy as a result of the separation of charge occurring when opposite surfaces of the nonconductor are maintained at a difference of potentialb: the measure of this property equal to the ratio of the charge on either surface to the potential difference between the surfaces
2: a part of a circuit or network that possesses capacitance
