Lesson: Parallel-Plate Capacitors Physics • 9th Grade
In this lesson, we will learn how to relate the capacitance of parallel plates to charge, potential difference, and electric field strength.
An 11.5 µF parallel plate capacitor stores 888 µC of charge. What is the potential difference across its plates?
A 475 µF parallel plate capacitor has a potential difference of 12.5 V across its plates. What charge does the capacitor store?
Which of the following formulas correctly relates the charge stored by a parallel plate capacitor to the capacitance of the capacitor, the permittivity of the medium between the plates, and the potential difference across the plates?
