Textbook Problem

(a) When a 9.00-V battery is connected to the plates of a capacitor, it stores a charge of 27.0 μC. What is the value of the capacitance? (b) If the same capacitor is connected to a 12.0-V battery, what charge is stored?

(a)

To determine
The capacitance.

Explanation

Given info: The potential difference applied by the battery is 9.00 V. The charge stored is 27.00μC .

Explanation:

Formula to calculate the capacitance is,

C=QΔV

  • Q is the charge.
  • ΔV is the potential difference.

Substitute 27.00μC for Q and 9.00 V for ΔV .

C=27.00μC9

(b)

To determine
The charge stored in the capacitor.
