Permittivity of Vacuum

Permittivity of Vacuum
Definition:Proportionality factor relating the electric displacement D and the electric field strength in vacuum: D = ε0 E. The permittivity of vacuum is given by ε0 = 1/μ0 c02, where μ0 represents the magnetic permeability of vacuum and c0 the velocity of light.
ε0 = 8.854187817 x 10-12 A s V-1 m-1
Units:A s V-1m-1, F m-1
Symbol:ε0
Scope note:Exact. Present value: 2006 CODATA recommended values
Synonyms:Electric Constant
Electric constant
Dielectric constant of vacuum
Translation: DEPermittivität des Vakuums
FRPermittivité du vide
