Phys 122 Assignment #3 Chapter 19/21: Capacitors and RC Circuits 1. A parallel-plate capacitor is constructed using plates of area of 30 cm x 50 cm separated by a piece of neoprene (κ=6.7 and E max =11x10 6 V/m) with a thickness of 0.23 mm. a) Find the capacitance of the capacitor. b) Find the maximum voltage and charge that the capacitor can withstand. Consider two such capacitors connected in parallel. c) Find the capacitance of the system. d) Find the maximum voltage and charge that the system can withstand. Consider two such capacitors connected in series. e) Find the capacitance of the system. f) Find the maximum voltage and charge that the system can withstand. 2. Four capacitors (initially uncharged) are connected to a battery as shown. Find the charge stored on each capacitor. 3. An uncharged 50.0 µF capacitor is charged by an 18.0 V battery through a 125 kΩ resistor. The charging begins at t=0 s. Determine the following … a) The time constant of the circuit.

    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.
