Textbook Problem

Determine (a) the capacitance and (b) the maximum voltage that can be applied to a Teflon-filled parallel-plate capacitor having a plate area of 175 cm2 and an insulation thickness of 0.040 0 mm.

(a)

To determine
The capacitance.

Explanation

Given info: The thickness is 0.040 mm. The area of the plate is 175cm2 .

Explanation:

Formula to calculate the capacitance is,

C=ε0Ad

  • ε0 is the permittivity of free space.
  • A is the area of the plate.
  • d is the thickness.

Substitute 8.85×1012 m3kg1s4A2 for ε0 , 175cm2 for A and 0.040 mm for d.

C=(8

(b)

To determine
The maximum voltage.
