i It gains 140 tLl of kinetic energy.
There is no change in potential energy since the particle moves horizontally. 7) ﬁj‘mjgfwef An air—spaced capacitor with plates of area A and separation ti is charged as shown and
disconnected from the battery. I put a dielectric plastic plate of area A, thickness d and dielectric constant K = 5 in between the plates. I let go of the dielectric plate, which is
initially at rest. 3 It stays in because the stored energy is lower when it is in.
