cture 9- cture 9- 3 Polar and Nonpolar Dielectrics E ext = 0 : the orientations of the permanent electric dipoles are distributed randomly, so the net dipole moment of the material is zero . E ext > 0 : the molecular dipoles try to align themselves with the field against random thermal motion, resulting in a net dipole moment. Polar dielectrics: dielectric material whose molecules have permanent electric dipole moments, such as water. Nonpolar dielectrics: molecules with no permanent electric dipole moments. E ext > 0 : ± charges separate, induced dipole moment emerges.

cture 9- 4 READING QUIZ 1 A capacitor C 0 with air dielectric κ =1 is charged to a potential V and then is disconnected from the battery. A uniform dielectric with dielectric constant κ > 1 is inserted into the capacitor and occupies the full volume of the capacitor. If the original electric field is E 0 and the final electric field is E κ , which of the following statements is correct.? A|
