Textbook Problem

Explain why a dielectric increases the maximum operating voltage of a capacitor even though the physical size of the capacitor doesn’t change.

To determine
Why a dielectric increases the maximum operating voltage of a capacitor.

Explanation

Capacitor is an electrical device which gets charged when it is connected to a battery. Capacitance is measured in farad (F).

When a dielectric is introduced inside a capacitor, its breakdown capacity enables it to withstand very large values of electric field...
