Unformatted text preview: Problem 1 (30 points) You are given 3 mm x 3 hurt sheets of aluminum with wires attached. You are also given 3 mm x 3 mm sheets of
strontium titanate (SrTi03, K = 23 3) of thickness 10 pm. You construct parallel plate capacitors by sandwiching
the SrTiO; between the aluminum plates. a.) What is the capacitance of a single capacitor that you can construct, C? (5 pts) b.) You construct ﬁve of these capacitors. How would you arrange these 5 capacitors to get the minimum net capacitance? (4 pts) c.) What is the minimum capacitance you can get with all ﬁve capacitors, Cmin?(5 pts) e.) The capacitor circuit shown above is connected to a battery of 12 V at time t = 0. A resistor of R = 10
k9 is in the circuit as shown. What is the charging time of the circuit, 1:? (4 pts) f.) What is the total energy stored in the capacitors at time t >> ‘E, s? (5 pts)  7. _q
