The answer to “The dielectric to be used in a parallel-plate capacitor has a dielectric constant of 3.60 and a dielectric strength of 1.60 X 107 V/m. The capacitor is to have a capacitance of 1.25 X 10-9 F and must be able to withstand a maximum potential difference of 5500 V. What is the minimum area the plates of the capacitor may have?” is broken down into a number of easy to follow steps, and 61 words.
