A parallel-plate capacitor is made from two aluminum-foil sheets, each 3.00 cm wide and 10.0 m long. Between the sheets is a mica strip of the same width and length that is 0.0225 mm thick. What is the maximum charge that can be stored in this capacitor? (The dielectric constant of mica is 5.4, and its dielectric strength is 1.00 x 108 V/m.)

Solution 62 P:

Step 1 of 2:-

Here, we have to find the maximum charge that can be stored in the capacitor.

The length of the plate is,

.

The breadth is,

.

The area is,

.

The gap between the plates is,

.

The dielectric constant of the medium is,

.

The dielectric strength is,

.
