Abstract: In this note, we show that the half-plane capacity of a subset of the upper half-plane is comparable to a simple geometric quantity, namely the euclidean area of the hyperbolic neighborhood of radius one of this set. This is achieved by proving a similar estimate for the conformal radius of a subdomain of the unit disc and by establishing a simple relation between these two quantities.
