The answers to your first and third questions are, "yes" and "yes". :]
 (Generally speaking if something can be done by a computer it can be
done with python.)

As for your second question check out the "magnitude" package:   and

(That second link also has links to three other packages that deal
with units of measurement.)

Ii has units for the SI measurements, including volts and coulombs, so
you should be able to accomplish your goals with it.

The tricky thing is, as far as I can tell from the wikipedia entry
"dielectric constant" seems to be a dimensionless number, i.e. C/C...
 I could be totally daft though.
