Physics Help?!?

The area of the plates in a 5440 pF parallel plate capacitor is 6.4 x 10-3 m2. Find the plate separation.

A 6.0 x 10-5 F polyester capacitor stores 5.0 x 10-4 C of charge. Find the potential difference across the capacitor?

Some ceramic capacitors can store 3.6 x 10-2 C with a potential difference of 30 kV across them. What is the capacitance of each capacitor?

    You're not telling us what part you're having problems with.

    6.4 x 10-3 m2 ? that is 64–3 = 61 m²

    C = 8.854e-12(61/d) = 5.44e-9

    d = 5.44e-9 / (61•8.854e-12) = 8.92e-11 m

    Parallel plate cap

    C = ε₀εᵣ(A/d) in Farads

       ε₀ is vacuum permittivity, 8.854e-12 F/m

       εᵣ is dielectric constant or relative permittivity

        of the material (vacuum = 1)

       A and d are area of plate in m² and separation in m
