    Have you got any examples?

    generally: read the whole question through and make sure you understand the setup the question is describing.

    make sure you understand what the question is asking you for... what type of answer will be acceptable e.g. is it asking you to describe something or to provide a numerical answer (with units)

    make sure you notice all the information the question is giving you - it's pretty unusual imo for there to be any 'red herring' type superfluous information given.

    I'm just talking about i.e capacitance, capacitors And the farad has between It three définitions that are similar.

    I find it most useful to think of the farad as C/V... The number of coulombs stored per Volt of PD across the capacitor.
