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...
