A parallel plate capacitor with plates of area A and plate

A parallel plate capacitor with plates of area A and plate separation d has the region between the plates filled with two dielectric materials (ε1 and ε2) as shown in the figure. Determine the capacitance and show that when ε1= ε2= ε your result becomes the same as that for a capacitor containing a single dielectric:

The electric field between two large parallel plates is given by:

σ = charge density and ε = permittivity
Since there are two dielectric ...
