Textbook Problem

A parallel-plate capacitor is disconnected from a batter, and the plates are pulled a small distance farther apart. Do the following quantities increase, decrease, or stay the same? (a) C (b) Q (c) E between the plates (d) ΔV (e) PEC

(a)

To determine
The effect of increasing the distance on capacitance.

Explanation

The capacitance is given by,

C=ε0Ad

(b)

To determine
The effect of increasing the distance on the charge.

(c)

To determine
The effect of increasing the distance on the electric field between the plates.

(d)

To determine
The effect of increasing the distance on the potential difference.

(e)

To determine
The effect of increasing the distance on the energy stored.
