The plates of a parallel plate air capacitor are 1.2 nm apart and area of each plate is 20 x 10^-4 m^2.
Find the capacitance.
It is connected to a 40 V battery.
(i) What is the charge on each plate?
(ii) What is the energy stored in the capacitor?
Repeat the calculations for the same capacitor with the air gap replaced by a medium of dielectric constant 5.7.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 7:52 pm ad1c9bdddf
