0.101  F

(b) What is the charge on the capacitor?

0.008  C

1.217  C

1.826  C

12.00  C

(c) What is the magnitude of the uniform electric field between the plates?

3.42 N/C

2,926.83 N/C

1,463.41 N/C

12 N/C

(d) Find the magnitude of the charge density on each plate.

1.363 C/m2

7.382 C/m2

3.885 C/m2

2.590 C/m2

e) Without disconnecting the battery, the plates are moved farther apart. Qualitatively, what happens to each of the previous answers?
