Capacitance of a parallel plate capacitor with dielectric.

17.68) A capacitor is made from two parallel conducting plates, each with an area of 860 squared. The plates are separated by a dielectric film 0.250 mm thick. Measurements show that the potential difference between the plates is 185 V when the charge on the plates is 1.75 uC. (a) What is the capacitance of the capacitor? (b) What is the most likely material used for the dielectric?
