Unformatted text preview: C = Capacitance 1 C/V = 1 F [Farad] Paralle plate capacito Parallel-plate capacitor C = A/d Electric field in a parallel plate capacitor: V = E d Dielectric Materials Insert a dielectric material into capacitor. Material polarizes E Field between plates is reduced E decreases but Q remains constant with V = E d we find that V decreases and because of Q = CV C must increase C = A/d k = dielectric contant...
