Question

A parallel-plate capacitor with plate separation d is connected to a battery that provides a potential difference ε. While still connected to the battery, the plate separation is increased to 2d.

a) Does the potential difference across the capacitor change as the separation increases? If so, then by what factor? If not, then why not?

b) Does the capacitance change as the separation increases? If so, then by what factor? If not, then why not?

c) Does the capacitor charge change as the separation increases? If so, then by what factor? If not, then why not?

d) Suppose that a dielectric with dielectric constant κ is inserted between the plates with the separation distance held constant. Does the capacitor charge change? If so, then by what factor? If not, then why not?

A parallel plate capacitor of capacitance Co has plates
of area A with separation d between them. When it is connected to a
battery of voltage Vo, it has charge of magnitude
Qo on its plates. It is then disconnected from the battery
and the plates are pulled apart to a separation 2d without
discharging them. After the plates are 2d apart, by what
factor does the magnitude of the charge on the plates change? By
what factor does the...

A parallel-plate air capacitor of area A= 14.0 cm2
and plate separation d= 2.20 mm is charged by a battery to a
voltage 56.0 V. If a dielectric material with κ = 4.00 is inserted
so that it fills the volume between the plates (with the capacitor
still connected to the battery), how much additional charge will
flow from the battery onto the positive plate?

A parallel plate capacitor with a
plate area of 20.0 cm2 and plate separation of 8.00 mm

A parallel plate capacitor has plates with equal and opposite
charges ±Q , which are initially separated by a distance d . The
capacitor is not connected to a battery. Then, the plates are moved
farther apart so they are now separated by a distance 2d and also a
dielectric with dielectric constant κ=2 that fills the entire space
in the gap is inserted. What happens to the stored energy U and the
potential difference between the plates ΔV=V+−V− after...

A parallel-plate capacitor is connected to a battery and stores
4.0 nCnC of charge. Then, while the battery remains connected, a
sheet of Teflon is inserted between the plates. For the dielectric
constant, use the value from Table 21.3. By how much does the
charge change?
