The actual charges on its plates are: a) Q,Q /0 b) Q/2,Q/2 C = jt d) Q/2,-Q/2 ^ e) Q,0 3. If the potential difference across a single capacitor is doubled, by what factor does the stored energy in the capacitor change? a) the energy remains the same - -,-r b) the new energy is twice the original U. 6 = J- C.v 0 •=? \A.£ ~ -i ^ -f c) the new energy is three times the original the new energy is four times the original \A r. ~ e) the new energy is eight times the original -ir a) none of the above (J( » - 4 ( {C /^^f Lf £ 4. If the space between the plates of a capacitor is completely filled with a dielectric material, the capacitance C is increased by a factor K, called the dielectric constant. False 5. The average drift speed of electrons moving in a wire when the wire is hooked up to a voltage source such as a car battery is very close to the speed of light, Trueorate v ^ 6.
