Question: A capacitor consists of a circular cross-section metallic rod of 1mm radius and a coaxial hollow metallic cylinder of 3mm radius of the inner surface. The length of the capacitor is 20cm. The space between the rod and the cylinder is filled by a dielectric 2.5 relative permittivity and 10^7 V/m breakdown strength.
