Abstract: It is shown that two definitions for an ${L_p}$ capacity $(1 < p < \infty )$ on subsets of Euclidean ${R^n}$ are equivalent in the sense that as set functions their ratio is bounded above and below by positive finite constants. The classical notions of capacity correspond to the case $p = 2$.
