Question

Consider two parallel plates (as in a parallel plate capacitor), with plates which are very much wider than their separation, with an electric potential across the plates. Sketch the equipotential lines and field lines between the plates.

If, the distance between the plates is 0.10 m, the potential of one plate is 0 V and the potential of the second plate is 10 V, what is the potential at a point 0.02 m from the second plate?

Answer #1

**Equipotential surfaces** are presented by dotted
lines that are always drawn at right angles to the field lines (the
solid vectors). Field lines always point from regions of high
potential to regions of low potential. In diagram below, the top
plate would be at +10 V and is the "high potential plate" while the
bottom plate would be at 0 V and is the "low potential
plate."

/

ΔV=E⋅d

where ΔV = Change in potential.

d = Distance between the plate

E = − ΔV/d

E = -(10) 0.10

E = 100 V/m

ΔV = − Ed cos θ

ΔV = − 100 * 0.02 cos (0^{o})

ΔV = − 2v

**Potential at 0.02 m from the second plate = 10v -2v =
8v**

The potential across the plates of a parallel-plate capacitor is
100 Volts and the separation between the plates is 0.02 m. The
charge on the plates are +50 nC and -50 nC, respectively. How much
energy is needed to slowly pull the plates apart so that the
distance between the plates is now 0.06 m? Assume that the area of
the plates and the charge on each plate do not change.

A parallel plate capacitor is made from two plates 7 cm^2 in
area, with a plate separation of 3 mm. The capacitor is fully
charged across a 30 V battery, and then disconnected.
