Multiple Choice Problems-put correct answer on front page 1) Consider a parallel plate capacitor connected to a battery that maintains the plates at a potential difference Δ V and a slab of dielectric with the same area and with thickness equal to the gap between the plates. Which of the following is a true statement regarding the situation as the dielectric is inserted into the capacitor at small constant velocity by some external force? a) The absolute magnitude of the work done by the battery is equal to the absolute magnitude of the work done by the force that is moving the dielectric in at constant velocity. No, since total work is not zero, and the work or battery is opposite in sign to that of the external force. b) The energy stored in the battery decreases during the process of inserting the dielectric. Yes, it does work. c) The work done by the external force is negative. Yes, the plate is pulled in by electric force, and the external force is against the displacement. d) Exactly 2 of the above statements 2) Two conducting plates of area A are parallel to each other and separated by a distance d, with A>>d 2 , so edge effects can be ignored. If each plate has a charge Q on it, what is the magnitude of the force one plate exerts on the other?

### 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.
