Part I: Solve the following problems 1. When the switch S is closed in the following circuit, what is the final electric charge on the 3- µ F capacitor? ( 4 points ) 20 V S 4 μF 3 μF 1 μF 2 μF 1- µ F and 3- µ F equivalent capacitance: C 13 = 4 µ F & 1- µ F, 3- µ F and 4- µ F equivalent capacitance: C 134 = 2 µ F Q 13 = 20 C 134 = 40 µ C V 13 = Q 13 / C 13 = 1 0 V Q 3 = C 3 V 13 = 30 µ C 2. An air-filled parallel-plate capacitor is charged by connecting to a 45-V battery. The capacitor is then disconnected from the battery and a dielectric ( K=3 ) is inserted between the plates so that it fills only one-third of the space between the plates. What is the potential difference between the plates now? ( 4 points ) C 1 = ε o A/(2d/3) = 1.5C o ; C 2 = ε o
