University Physics Young and Freedman Chapter 24 Concept Questions and solutions Chapter 24: Pre-chapter Question Q: If the charges +Q and -Q on the plates of a capacitor are constant, what happens to the potential difference between the plates when the plates are moved closer together? A: C increases since distance is inversely proportional to capacitance. 1. If you double the amount of charge on a capacitor, how does the capacitance change? Does your answer depend on the size or shape of the conductors that make up the capacitor? (Assume there is only vacuum between the conductors.) A: No change; doubling Q doubles potential as well. 2. If a 4-uF capacitor and a 8-uF capacitor are connected in parallel, which has the larger potential difference across it? Which has the larger charge? A: Potential difference is the same in parallel capacitors; Q = CV; so 8uF capacitor carries more charge. 3. If a 4-uF capacitor and a 8-uF capacitor are connected in series, which has the greater amount of stored energy? What if the capacitors are connected in parallel?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
