100 Capacitance and Dielectrics P26.70 The vertical orientation sets up two capacitors in parallel, with equivalent capacitance C A d A d A d p = + = + F H G I K J 00 0 22 1 2 bg κ where A is the area of either plate and d is the separation of the plates. The horizontal orientation produces two capacitors in series. If f is the fraction of the horizontal capacitor filled with dielectric, the equivalent capacitance is 1 11 0 C fd A fd A ff d A s = + = +− L N M M O Q P P , or C A d s = L N M M O Q P P 1 0 .
