# A parallel-plate capacitor has plates of area A = 7.00 × 10 −2 m 2 separated by distance d = 2.00 × 10 −4 m. (a) Calculate the capacitance if the space between the plates is filled with air. What is the capacitance if the space is filled half with air and half with a dielectric of constant κ = 3.70 as in (b) Figure P16.56a, and (c) Figure P16.56b? ( Hint: In (b) and (c), one of the capacitors is a parallel combination and the other is a series combination.) Figure P16.56
