capacitance

 (C) [kah-pas″ĭ-tans]
1. the property of being able to store an electric charge.
2. the ratio of the charge stored by a capacitor to the voltage across the capacitor.

ca·pac·i·tance

(kă-pas'i-tans),
1. The quantity of electric charge that may be stored upon a body per unit electric potential; expressed in farads, abfarads, or statfarads.
2. In genetics, a state in the evolutionary context referring to an ability to contain or hold. For example, heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) acts as a buffer, preventing expression of certain genetic traits by allowing these genetic variations to accumulate and stay silenced under neutral conditions. When the capacitance of Hsp90 is compromised, these cryptic variants are then expressed.

A draft loan contract of $180 mln to fund the expansion works of Tanger-Med port was signed Friday between the Agence Speciale Tanger Mediterranee (the Tangier Mediterranean Special Agency TMSA) and the Arab Fund for Economic and Social Development (AFESD).a According to a press release of the TMSA, the loan provides for building a second deepwater port, dubbed "Tangier Med II", to meet the growing demand for containers treatment at the international level in sea transport.aaThe port, to be operational by the second half of 2012, will include two container terminals with a total length of 2,800 m and a nominal capacity of 5 million containers, said the same source.
