## Problems from Electricity

1. The parallel plates of an air filled capacitor with area of area 1.1 x 10^8 m^2 . What must be the width of the plate be if the Capacitance is 1 Farad?
2. Four capacitor each of 2microfarad are connected in such a way that total capacitance is also 2microfarad. Show what combination gives this value. Also try to illustrate the diagram.

(Fari posted these)

1.Using the formula: $C=&space;A\varepsilon&space;/d$

and substituting , C= 1 F, A = 1.1 x 108, $\varepsilon$ = 8.8 x 10-12,

we get  , d =9.68×10-4 metres

## Capacitance, voltage and Potential difference

the capacity of parallel plate condenser is 5 micro Faraday. When a glass plate is placed between the plates of the conductor  its potential become 1/8th of the original value. The value of dielectric constant will be
(A)1.6
(B)5
(C)8
(D)40

The charge remains same

Use Cm=KCo
and
V reduced to 1/8 means capacitance increased 8 times since Q=CV
