Physics 212 Lecture 8, Slide 14 14 Preflight 8 BB 60 “Q is fixed in this case and we have just increased the capacitance on C2. Therefore, the voltage difference on C2 must be lower.” “Dielectrics increase Capacitance. They do not increase or decrease potential difference” “The dielectric increases the energy stored so it must also increase the voltage”
