Capacitance is defined as

\[C = \frac{dQ}{dV}.\]

Since current is defined as \(I = \frac{dQ}{dt}\), we derive the current and potential relation for capacitor

\[\begin{split}&C dV = dQ \\ \Rightarrow &C \frac{dV}{dt} = \frac{dQ}{dt} \\ \Rightarrow & C \frac{dV}{dt} = I.\end{split}\]


Inductor is defined as

\[L = \frac{d\Phi}{dI},\]

where \(\Phi\) is the magnetic flux of the inductor and \(I\) is the current going through the inductor.
