Question

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

Answer #1

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...

1)A parallel plate capacitor (denoted as Capacitor 1) has a plate
area A1
and a separation distance d1.
It is filled with a dielectric made of mylar (κ=3.1). With these
conditions, it has a capacitance C1.
A second parallel plate capacitor (denoted as Capacitor 2) has the
same plate area as the first capacitor (A1
= A2)
but the separation distance is twice as large (d1
= ½ d2).
The second capacitor is filled with the same dielectric (mylar) and...

An air-filled capacitor (with a capacitance C) consisting two
parallel plates separated by a distance d is connected to a battery

the battery, the plate separation is adjusted to 2d. In terms of C,
V and Q, find the new value of capacitance, voltage, charge and
energy stored on the capacitor. Explain your answer. [5 marks]

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?
